Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Nineteen eighty-seven's Sundance Season was released at the height of Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai's creative powers and is the first of two recordings done at Lindisfarne Mountain Retreat in Colorado (the other being Desert Dance). While Desert Dance is a solid representation of Nakai's diverse talents, Sundance Season emits a more inspired, alive energy, perhaps due to the Sun Dance festival that took place near Lindisfarne during recording time. Nakai's flute meditations on this collection emote relaxing, centered prayer while his chant and gentle, low drumming seamlessly blend in an added ancient dimension. Particular standouts include "White Shell Dreams" with its cleansing sounds of a fresh rain shower and the Tibetan bell on "Ritual I" and "Ritual II," uniquely bringing forth a peaceful awakening. The solo on the eagle-bone whistle mixed with Nakai's lovely baritone voice provide a pure, golden finish. One of Nakai's best. --Karen Karleski

Still love this album...

"I had a copy of this recording nearly 15 years ago and ran across it again recently. I still find it to be one of R. Carlos Nakai's best recordings."
Sacred Music
OAKSHAMAN | Algoma, WI United States | 05/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is music of an entirely different level from almost everything that one hears in the modern world. In a sense it is more prayer than music. You stop, you listen, you begin to contemplate sacred things. This is appropriate, since the underlieing theme is the great ritual of the Sun Dance. This is music to cross between the worlds.

Carlos Nakai is the finest master of the traditional Native American flute that I have ever heard. He is almost supernaturally good. Yet, somehow the accoustics of the Lindisfarne Chapel manages to make him sound even better than usual."
Exellent pick
