CD Reviews

Some of the most moving music I have heard
Trent M. Nicholson | Yucca Valley, CA USA | 02/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nakki produces a romantic, healing, while vaguely haunting music that gently transports you back to a time when music was more than just entertainment. Nakki emulates the traditional music of his Navajo-Ute in a way that is both touching and mystic. Be prepared to be taken on a journey where you will be introduced to the feelings an impressions that Nakki himself experiences. He will show you through his music what the world around his means to him, and he will instill that awe of life in you.Nakki doesn't fall into the trap of giving the musical tourist exactly what he expects. There is no chanting or jingling bells, no corny sound effects or war cries. Instead he simply taps into that inner peace that we all look for. Perhaps that's the reason so many people have come to appreciate his music. The universal understanding of, and need for, peace and insight."
Pure and Sweet!

"I bought this CD without really knowing what I was getting into after I spent a week on the Shoshone and Arapaho Reservation. I especially enjoy "Athabascan Song" and "Ancient Dreams". If you really focus on relaxing and listening, the true beauty of these songs will wash over you. Words are not needed."
Spiritual Union: Earth, Sky and You

"Carlos Nakai captures the presence of Spirit in the canyons and landscapes of the Southwest which he transmits as he plays his flute. The listener connects with the earth, sky, and all living and nonliving things with the sound of each note. The mysteries of nature are revealed .... the spiritual realm is opened as whirls of energy surround the listener. Anyone listening is more open to exploring their own personal journey on this path called Life ... infinite possibilities and choices are narrowed down to the ones that matter to you the most. This music is serene, meditative, life-affirming and loving ... The flute music is like the air we breath ... it is essential and very beautiful and real. Erika Borsos (erikab93)"
