Shamaneya

Shamaneya

An album of songs composed and sung by Shelley Snow, eight of wich are in an original language, "This language sets the listener free from the limits imposed by specific meanings, and is meant to be evocative in a poetic sense. The words and sounds I have created have no linguistic translation.

 

My deepest thanks to Robert Coxon, without whose superb talent, support and incredible generosity this album would not have been possible.

 

To Karl Berger, who helped me develop as a composer, to Stephen, for his unfailing support and encouragement, and to Christopher Smith, Barney Beninger, Jay Cardinale, Roger Jay, Philip Ambrose and Lina.

 

Produced by Shelley snow and Robert Coxon

Engineered by Barney Beninger at Studio Fast forward, Montreal

and Robert Langois at Studio 270, Montreal
