Shaela Noella was born in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas in Sonora, California. She was born under the name of Noella Roselena Rainbow Baldonado. She found her singing voice at age 18 chanting to “Great Spirit” through her spiritual practice that invoked the connection to her Native American ancestral roots. Around this same time she felt a calling to go by the name Shaela, mirroring wherein some Native American traditions the people will carry on a new name for a new time in their life or signalling a life changing experience, a rite of passage.Shaela is the sound of where the ocean and land meet; it is the place of re-birth, the place in the center of her heart where Shaela’s songs pour forth.
