Synopsis

Amazon.com
With a natural talent reminiscent of R. Carlos Nakai, Mary Youngblood spins a wondrous ancient music from her cedar, redwood, and birch flutes on The Offering. This special album was recorded in the heart of Moaning Cavern in California, and the result is a collection of beautiful, ethereal dreams rich with melancholy colors and diverse wooden tones. The composition "Echoes" sings with its chamber dual flute as if Youngblood is playing a duet with herself, droning and fluttering against the moist cavern walls. In several tunes an occasional cadence from water hitting the cave floor is heard, and this spontaneous, subterranean interaction enhances the earthy purity of the music. This was Youngblood's debut, a masterful work full of tradition and spiritual grace, topped only by Youngblood herself on the folksy follow-up, Heart of the World. --Karen K. Hugg

"If Mary Youngblood is not the finest Native American flute player on earth, I don't know who is. Her sense of melody and phrasing are just beyond compare. This album is the Native American Flute at it's best!"
