These tracks incorporate the longing, mystery, playfulness and joy of life as told in the lessons of animals on many continents.

Medicine Gift (Title Track)
Each time you listen to a track, you will be re-informed by these totems.
Memo (the Spanish word for “Bill”) is healer/artist and shamanic practitioner in the energy traditions of the Inca. The flute first appeared to him in a shamanic journey called a ‘soul retrieval.’ He incorporated the Native American flute in the shamanic 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 Gift, Volume 1 is the first in a series of CDs inspired by animal totems and power animals. Sometimes the listener seems to embody the totem, on other tracks we are the sacred witnesses of the animal in its life’s journey.
Inspired by the music of R. Carlos Nakai, Mary Youngblood and Stephen DeRuby, Memo takes the Native American Flute on a quest for light and love.
