Medicine Gift – Volume 2
More Voices of Animal Totems, Spirit Guides and Power Animals
"Haunting and plaintive Native American flute melodies."
This is the second in a unique series of Native American-inspired New Age Music. The music is shamanic, and is used for meditations, healing sessions, inspiration and shamanic journeying. It breaks you free of time as you step into the world of animal totems and power animals.
For thousands of years, indigenous peoples have looked to the animal kingdom for insights into life’s journey. And the concept is gaining acceptance in urban circles at surprising speed. These tracks incorporate the longing, mystery, playfulness and joy of life as told in the lessons of animals on many continents.
The wolf howl on “Wolf Medicine” is shocking as it put you in the middle of the pack. Memo pulls out all of the stops on the playful “Prairie Dog Medicine.” And we step into Native American lands in “Bison,” “Mountain Goat” and “Moose.”
Each time you listen to a track, you will be re-informed by these totems.
Memo (the Spanish word for “Bill”) is a healer/artist and shamanic practitioner in the tradition 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 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 2 continues the innovative series of recordings that make shamanic journeying approachable. Sometimes the listener seems to embody the totem, on other tracks we are sacred the 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.
