R. Carlos Nakai

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

I'm born and raised in the City of New York, but damn if I haven't told people a million times over the years - I belong in the Mountains and Forests. This music takes me somewhere I know I have been before. I'd love so much to go back there again.

We do not play the flute, it is that we pray through the flute

When I listen to Mr Nakai I remember the time I lived as a younger man in the Black Hills of South Dakota. So calming. So spiritual. Thank you for taking me there again.
