Recorded inside the Desert View Watchtower on the South Rim of Grand Canyon in Arizona, this collection of American Indian songs celebrates the most ancient sounds to emerge from Öngtupqa (the traditional Hopi name for Grand Canyon). Vocals are accompanied by a 1,500-year-old Hopi long flute and clay pot percussion. A powerful soundtrack for one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Not for Entertainment
07 August 2019  | 

This is a truly ancient music that reflects the Hopi relationship with the land, with the resources, with the animal kingdom, and with the universe. This is music that takes us back to the time before the Europeans brought their culture and their worldview. It is music for reflection; it is not music for entertainment. It is a window into a time that is gone, a time that our hectic lives may well be craving. The richness of the recording is captivating, the melodies haunting. With its timeless beauty and powerful presentation, this is a very satisfying CD on many levels.
