Overview

R. Carlos Nakai teams with Tibetan trumpet and flute master Nawang Khechog to offer healing chants and inspirational prayers that emphasize wisdom and compassion. The duo gets supporting help from Chris White's sirenlike vocals, which add a lovely ambience, and David Darling's soaring cello. But this impressive convergence of Himalayan and Native American healing music gets its biggest lift from Peter Kater. A frequent Nakai collaborator, Kater's touch is not immediately obvious; he plays synthesizer and sings background vocals, but it is his sensitive arrangements that create the respectful pulsating and womblike space of this recording. WINDS OF DEVOTION is soft enough to play for background music yet focused enough for use in meditation.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ross Boissoneau
Native American flute master R. Carlos Nakai and his counterpart on Tibetan flute, Nawang Khechog, join forces on this adventurous world music set. The goal is not simply to create enjoyable tunes, but to present an integrated Tibetan and Native American healing experience. Whether that's the case or not will depend on the individual listener, but the music does stand on its own. [Gemini Sun reissued the album in 2008.]
