R. Carlos Nakai Artist Snapshot:

Southwestern flautist R. Carlos Nakai has left his unique mark on the Native American music canon. He is not an archivist of traditional songs, but rather a synthesist of new sounds, fusing the spirit of his Navajo ancestors with modern sensibilities. He composes soaring melodies for solo wooden flute (of his own design) evoking the terrible beauty of the desert landscape, adding jazzy, ambient, and New Age elements. He's been recording since the early 1980s, and his solo outings and his collaborations with pianist/composer Peter Kater, flautist Paul Horn, and others have met great critical and popular success.

Product Notes

Nakai's free improvisations on this album are based on his impressions of the Anasazi and Sinagua sites, ancient cliff dwellings that were home to communities of Native people thousands of years ago. By using the Roland SDE 3000 Digital Delay system, Nakai is able to play duets with his own echo, in an effort to emulate the echoes of the past that haunt these ruins. On this recording, Nakai's flute sounds even more plaintive than usual, as if the spirits of these forgotten ancestors had entered into the studio to fill his playing with the whispered reverberations of their ancient ways. This is one of Nakai's most deeply felt recordings, one that resonates with a deep, melancholy yearning. --j. poet
