Desert Moon Song

$15.95

Item #SP7150CD. Native and silver flutes echo the distant call of coyotes. Harps and synthesizers evoke images of the vast and spacious desert, creating a sense of mystery and inner calm.““Desert Moon Song is the culmination of Dean and Dudley Evenson’s 12-year sojourn in the desert and reflects their deep respect for the desert’s scared and purifying energies. The music and natural sounds take the listener through the full cycle of a day, beginning with coyotes on a full moon night and moving into dawn and the awakening of the day. The Indian rain chant is by Hopi elder Grandfather David Monoyne. Afternoon monsoon rains and thunder follow. Dusk and evening sounds and a chorus of mating frogs complete the healing circle.““This album introduced the Evenson’s daughter Sarah, then 15-years old, who played lead melody on “Grandfather Rain.” She and Dean composed the piece together. Grandfather David’s rain chant was recorded in 1972 at the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden. Dean’s wooden flute and ceremonial drum were both personally created for him by Native American friends.““Tracks from Desert Moon Song are featured on the 1995 Public Broadcasting Systems (PBS) documentary “The Way West.” The program is produced by Ric Burns and Lisa Ades.
