Jorie and Christie West, make up this award winning duo and are known for their unique blend of rich, beautiful harmonies. Jorie and Christie are mother and daughter who, after working for many years as studio musicians and backup vocalists on the mainland and in Hawaii, began singing together as Sayani (Cherokee word meaning Zion). The Sacred Fire album was written to share their family stories, both past and present, of life as an Indian through language and music.


Sayani is the Native American arm of Aloha Ke Akua Ministries, a ministry to Indigenous peoples all over the world. While living in Hawaii they sang with the Hawaiian group Na Kahu and sang back up vocals on various albums throughout the state.


Jorie moved to Hawaii with her father and daughter, Carrie, in 1995 while Christie was attending college in California. Christie, who developed an exceptional ear for harmony at a very early age, moved to Hawaii in 1997 and joined her mother as a studio musician. They began singing together in Hawaiian bands and worship teams and traveled as Ambassadors of the Aloha Spirit to Australia, New Zealand and the West Coast of Mainland, USA. In August of 2006, they moved to Texas to begin their full-time ministry.
