This collection of Native American drumming music has been created from childhood to adulthood memories. Drum Awakenings is a collection of drum music that Roman has been brought up on and used in various types of ceremonial settings. Drum Awakenings was created to be used as a form of meditational/prayer music.

 

1. Constant Thunder (5:45)

Apache Water Drum played by Roman Orona

Weaving the vibrations of the water, the deep tone of the drum, and the hitting of the wet deer hide, allows for the listener to feel the vibrations deep into the soul. This song was meant to empower your meditational/prayer practices.

 

2. Calling (7:21)

Large Powwow Drum Played By Roman Orona

The large pow wow drum emits a vibration that can be felt throughout every cell of the listeners body. This song was inspired by the ringing of the church bells ringing, calling all church goers to the church for service. This song allows the listener to call upon themselves to create their individual service (meditation, prayer, yoga, etc).

 

3. First Flight (5:41)

Large Powwow Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by the challenge of trying something new in life. That doubt and stress but allowing yourself to be free and trying new things heightens your confidence in all things. Just like a bird on its first attempt at flight, scary and awkward at first but then soon, soaring!

 

4. Breathing (8:00)

Large Powwow and Hand Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song is a breathing meditation. While one drum is played you inhale deep for the length of the drum. When the next drum is played you exhale. You continue your inhale and exhale as the drum changes. Happy Breathing!

 

5. Walk With Me (8:08)

Hand Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by a Native Social Dance called the “Round Dance.” This dance is done with everyone holding hands and dancing in a clockwise circle with the singers in the center of the circle.

 

6. Awaken The Dream (5:15)

Apache Water Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by the drumming of a Peyote Ceremony. This ceremony is performed from sunset to sunrise with lots of songs and prayers. This type of drumming is both fast paced but yet soothing and calming at the same time.

 

7. Dancing Spirit (7:29)

Powwow Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by the drumming of an intertribal song, usually sung as part of a Pow Wow. The intertribal song is meant for all nationalities to come out into the powwow arena and enjoy the song and dance. The song was meant to allow your spirit to soar and dance. Happy Dancing!

 

8. Heart To Survive (7:15)

Powwow Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by the beating of the heart. This song is played on the big powwow drum and in my culture the drum is the heartbeat of all things. All types of drumming is similar to the various beats of the heart (resting, slow, medium, fast, etc.). In order for all of us to survive, we need the heart. In order for my culture to survive, we need the drum. Sending love from my heart to yours!

 

9. Canyon Echo (8:01)

Hand Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by an actual event. I was standing at the edge of a canyon, singing and drumming, and the echo was as if the ancestors were singing with me. I wanted the echo of the drum to fill your soul and create calm.
