15.00

‘Night Chants – Native American Flute’ is collection of 16 original compositions by multi-instrumentalist Gary Stroutsos expressing the ancient traditions of sacred and secular music, that have been passed down through generations of families and communities. As Gary says in his own words,

“For me it has been an honour to have the opportunity to have studied, recorded, performed with so many diverse Native American people over my lifetime. At this stage of my career it has become a ‘lifeway’ to continue to share in a good way, wherever I am asked, the many time-honoured stories and songs that were so graciously shared with me. It is like a dream any of this ever happened to me but I am glad it did and it makes me smile to keep the music going not for myself but so the music can live on. We make a better world through story and song creative positive bonds.”

On ‘Night Chants – Native American Flute’, Gary Stroutsos performs on the full range of flutes including the traditional Dakota 5-hole Native American cedar flute (1, 5, 7); Native American contemporary 6-hole wood drone flute (2, 13); Hopi southwest desert rim flute (3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10), clay aerophones (10), traditional Dakota 6-hole cedar elk flute (11), river cane wind whistles (11), contemporary Native American 6-hole wood flute (12), traditional Dakota 6-hole cedar flute (14) and traditional Navajo 6-hole cedar flute (16).
