Echoes of the Sacred Feminine.
"…haunting and plaintive Native American flute melodies."
Ideal for sound healing sessions, meditation music, shamanic journeying and Yoga music.
Memo’s Native American flutes take you on subtle and poignant journeys that explore the mysteries of the sacred feminine archetypes. These are the archetypes of the unknown, the mysterious, the longing, sacrifice and love that are common to us all.
“The music seems to break you free of time as you step into the world of your becoming.”
For thousands of years, indigenous peoples have used the flute to communicate and celebrate the mysteries of our soul’s journey. The melodies are somehow familiar to us, as we begin to realize that this music is always with us, ready to be interpreted through the instrument. The sound is archetypal, that is we all instinctively know the message and are informed and re-informed by it.
"Memo's music has shamanic, healing and meditative undertones. Each time it is played, there is something new to discover."
“Memo’s Medicine Prayer CD showcases his range of musical storytelling:
You sit in contemplation on the Malibu shore in “Mother Ocean.” (“Malibu” is the Chumash Indian word meaning “the surf sounds loudly.”} Memo recorded the surf at world-famous Paradise Cove where the waves are particularly haunting, holding the mysteries of the Chumash elders and incorporated it into this track.
“Cliffs of Moher” finds you 600 feet above the surf on the west coast of Ireland, soaring with Irish angels.
“Forest Glen” and “Treetop” bring you the energy of the 500 year-old Big Spruce, located in the Pacific Rain Forest near Yachats, Oregon. The Medicine Prayer album cover is shot next to this tree with a John Stillwell Ancient Territories flute (www.atflutes.com) and a medicine bundle.
The final track, “Rainbow Tears” evokes all the anticipation and resolution of crossing over. The drone flute cracks with emotion.”
Memo (the Spanish word for “Bill”) is a healer/artist and shamanic practitioner in the Inca tradition. The flute first appeared to him in a shamanic journey called a ‘soul retrieval.’ He incorporated the Native American flute in the practices of opening sacred spaces and divination, and soon began recording music inspired by the powerful healing ways of the Q’ero, the last descendants of the Inca of the high Andes.
Medicine Prayer continues the innovative series of recordings that make shamanic journeying approachable. Inspired by the music of R. Carlos Nakai, Mary Youngblood, Scott August and Stephen DeRuby, Memo takes the Native American Flute on a quest for light and love.
