‘A Beautiful Dawn’ by Ramdilla Cody

Radmilla Cody sings traditional songs of the Diné (Navajo) that embrace the heritage of her matrilineal line and traditional upbringing. She is of the Tla’a’schi’i’(Red Bottom People) clan. This song expresses the serene feeling of seeing the dawn and directing one’s focus for the day. Sung in Diné, the lyrics say: “The dawn brings the thinking process, the dawn brings the planning process, the dawn brings life from here forward…”

“A Beautiful Dawn” is from the album Spirit of a Woman by Radmilla Cody, courtesy Canyon Records, license #2012-019
