Description: Commissioned by James Pellerite for his on-going creation of literature for the Native American flute. Inspired by Native American shaman ceremonies, this piece for Native American flute and maracas features bending tones and a steadily building accelerando to an ecstatic ending. The flute part may also be played on concert flute, or adapted for shakuhachi.
