R. Carlos Nakai & William Eaton

Tucson-based multi-instrumentalist R. Carlos Nakai is a Native-American musician and cultural anthropologist of Navajo-Ute descent. Though he received classical training on the trumpet, his numerous recordings consist primarily of resonant solo performances of Native-American flute improvisations with a judicious use of synthesizers, chanting, and nature sounds. Nakai only occasionally features arrangements of traditional melodies from various tribes; instead, he is primarily concerned with creating original compositions that capture the essence of his heritage in highly personalized ways. In addition to his solo recordings, Nakai has had the opportunity to create new avenues of expression for the Native American flute through collaborations with various artists over the years, including the ethnic jazz band Jackalope, keyboardist Peter Kater, contemporary classical composer James DeMars, and multi-instrumentalist William Eaton. ~ Linda Kohanov, Rovi

Though I have no Navajo in me, the sounds of this music moves my Native American roots. I appreciate coming back to my Native American culture and descent. I'm Cherokee, Choctaw, Blackfoot, and Crow.

Carlos, I attended your performance in Bend Oregon years ago with two young Japanese students at COCC. The music was timeless and we commend your dedication in keeping the Native American culture and spirit alive. Your music reflects a peaceful side of our American history.

Soothing and spiritual!
Having just discovered Mr Nakai and the flute - his original musical pieces of native and natural sounds continue to amaze, awe and astound. How cool it is to hear something that isn't pounding deafeningly at my eardrums and without lyrics cursing at me or my b**ch.
