Winds of Devotion CD
From opposite sides of the world, two rich traditions in healing music meet in one beautiful album: Winds of Devotion.
Acclaimed Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai and Tibetan flute virtuoso Nawang Khechog come together in a cross-continental prayer for compassion, wisdom, healing, and universal love. These Grammy®-nominated artists offer you four peaceful and uplifting compositions of healing music that express their shared reverence for the divine spirit.
Nakai and Khechog share a harmonious rapport based on common dedication to the meditative path of music. Their flutes resonate with ancient indigenous sounds that spark a deep remembrance in the heart of the modern listener. Blending sacred chant, prayer, and the timeless beauty of the wooden flute, Winds of Devotion is an unforgettable experience from two masters of ancient healing music.
Ideal for meditation, massage, body work, tai chi, or yoga. Features vocals by Chris White, with David Darling on cello, Wade Mathews on bass, and Geoffrey Gordon on percussion. Produced and arranged by Peter Kater.
