Stillness Through Native American Flute Music
Perhaps the most “open” and receptive of eight-time NAMMY nominee GOLANA´’s albums, Path To The Heart features nine compositions for solo flute. Called “little short of magic” by New Age Retailer Magazine, this album is over fifty six minutes of stillness and healing, and was a NAV Finalist for Best Healing/Meditation Album.
Native American flutist Golana´ (Raven), a member of the Echota Cherokee Tribe, began a spiritual quest 15 years ago that completely changed his life and led to the release of eight emotive, spiritual and award-winning albums. Often composing while in majestic settings such as the Sierras, Joshua Tree and Sedona, Golana´’s albums feature his entrancing flutes backed by acoustic guitar, acoustic grand piano, electronic keyboards, violin, cello and hand drums.
NAMMY 'Native American Music Awards' and ISMA 'Indian Summer Music Awards' winner Golana´ sees his music as more than just entertainment. “When I play, it’s the long, drawn-out sounds of the flute that capture the feelings, the emotion and the passion in the compositions. The poignancy and slow pace of the songs helps me convey the feelings that inspired the writing of that music. I want the listener to slow down, match the mood of the music, and think about things.”
