Overview

Taos Tales

Robert Mirabal grew up on Taos Pueblo, a land of adobe, sky, mountain, blue water, and ancient tradition. For his sixth recording, the Native American composer, flute maker, and singer draws on sounds, sights, and stories specific to that area, yet universal in meaning. "Friends" creates an evocative chant of the importance of connection, with percussion, voices, and synthesized and sampled sounds. Sparse drumbeat, shakers, whispered words, and the breath of the flute recall the atmosphere of the ancient Anasazi people in "Painted Caves," while the meditative "Oñate" and the flamenco-infused "Ee-you-Oo" interpret the Spanish influence on northern New Mexico in very different melodic ways. "Skinwalker's Moon" is a hypnotic dance with the darker powers of the night, while "Flute Song" recalls Mirabal's musical beginnings as a flute-playing warrior. Seven additional tunes explore his Native and American heritage with colors both bright and dark.

The music, words, and those pictures of Robert are all excellent! All the songs are so visonary, spiritual and moving. If you have been to NM or Taos you will see why, if you have not been, I recommend that you go. Thanks for the beautiful you, Robert.
