Belonging to the Sun & the Moon
New Contemplative Compositions for the American Indian/Native American Flute. Belonging to the Sun and the Moon is consciously and consistently peaceful and down-tempo throughout... 12 New and Original Songs - Running Time 42½ Minutes From the CD jacket: 'The spirit of the American Indian flute lives on in the canyons, forests, prairies, mountains, and thriving Indian communities across this great land. Talented Native players have carried forward the traditions of their ancestors, while simultaneously elevating this unique indigenous flute to it's rightful place among the World's most respected musical instruments. Though not of American Indian descent myself, I have been deeply touched by the incredibly varied and beautiful languages, cultures, sacred lands and musical traditions of this continent's first peoples. These original compositions blend Native influences with my own life experiences and traditions. I hope you find them peaceful and at the same time, emotionally powerful. This recording contains only cedar and river cane flutes - without percussion, vocals, or any other added sounds. I believe this instrument speaks most clearly and powerfully in this way, it's voice transcending cultural and temporal barriers - reminding us that we all belong to the Sun and the Moon.'
