Native American Heritage Month Salute

R. Carlos Nakai (of Navajo-Ute heritage) is the world's premier Native American flute performer. Credited as the first ever Native American artist performing traditional solo flute music, Nakai recorded more than 50 albums since his early 1980's debut. "I like this collaborative piece for its ability to fuse ancient instrumentation and melodies with 'contemporary' music, " stated Hassan El-Amin. Enjoy and relax! #NIRMV #CelebratingLegendsAndLegacies
