Raised in the culture of his Indigenous roots, Roman Orona presents a collection of Apache inspired songs that express his people’s sacred values with Baha’i prayers/writings. With drums, dancers’ bells, and vocals sung from the heart, Roman’s music acknowledges the spirits of the ancestors who sacrificed their lives, families and lands, so that their tribal communities could endure. Driven by a vision of respect, faith, and unification for all humanity, these songs are meant to touch the human soul in all of us, while combining his cultural upbringing with his religious beliefs into one.

“I bear witness, O my God, that Thou

hast created me to know Thee and to 

worship Thee. I testify, at this moment,

to my powerlessness and to Thy might,

to my poverty and to Thy wealth.

There is none other God but Thee,

the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.”
