Stirring and Thought Provoking

"Nakai produces a romantic, healing, while vaguely haunting music that gently transports you back to a time when music was more than just entertainment. Nakai 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 Nakai 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.Nakai 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."
Timeless in, of, and about nature, man, the spirit above all

"The base is traditional. The composition is contemporary and the beauty is eternal. Nakai continues his journey along the paths discovered by his people. If you can enjoy this in the environs of its creation your enjoyment of it will be more complete. If you can't, just imagine the high plains of the Southwest covered with a black sky filled with tiny points of light, almost to the point of being continuous. You are one but you are not alone. You are small but you are significant. Participate!"
