ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Indigenous people have used music to communicate their deepest hopes and beliefs to each other, and to the forces in the universe. The most ancient and natural forms of musical expression were the voice, the drum and the flute. These timeless channels of healing and meditation can also summon us to reflect on our own personal season of life in the "Journey to the Four Winds". For Native Americans, traditional music usually recounted their experiences with all relationships in the world around them. Ideally, there existed no separation between our daily life, and the supernatural world, so our music was sacred. In the Circle of Life, the Four winds can be guides for us to forgive our yesterdays, hope for a healthy today, see more clearly with our hearts, and to humbly share with others what we've learned.
In my music, I utilize unique indigenous instruments from around the world with their own colors and rhythms, to create harmonious offerings to the Four Winds of the Universe. Each of our lives is a valuable and beautiful part of the Universal Circle of which we are connected to. Our diverse cultures, age, gender, and experiences bring balance to the Circle, so that it continues to revolve smoothly. It is my hope that we can all be united by the pulse of the drum, soaring higher and higher with the melody of the voice and flute in this "Journey to the Four Winds".

TONY REDHOUSE - SOLO MUSIC

Tony Redhouse, (Navajo) is an accomplished World-Beat percussionist. Raised as a Hoop Dancer, the constant "heartative American drum became a reference point for Tony's interest and development of diverse ethnicbeat" of the N rhythms. During Tony's youth, he was exposed to Afro-Cuban, Latin Rock and urban soul style drumming in the San Francisco Bay area, and continued to pursue other African based rhythms which he later fused with Jazz.

Today, Tony combines his ethnic style percussion with Native American flutists and musicians during concerts and in the recording studio, to create a colorful blend of musical textures. The power of the drum to unite all people is expressed by Tony as he weaves the sounds of indigenous instruments & rhythms to his contemporary style of drumming. During his solo performances, Tony plays Native Flute and percussion instruments from around the world. As a musician, dancer and artist, Tony promotes the arts as a vehicle to bring the message of balance & harmony.

He has recorded with his siblings, "The Redhouse Family Jazz Ensemble", on the Canyon Records label CD titled "Urban Indian". Tony can also be heard on other CD's with Native artists Darryl Tonemah on the "Ghosts of St. Augustine", with Robert Tree Cody on "Maze". and "Native Flamenco", the latter which fuses fiery Latin percussion with traditional flamenco guitar and Native American flute. Tony is currently working on several solo CD projects, and plays locally as a guest percussionist with such groups as Maruma (Rock) and The CPR Orchestra, a high energy Latin/Salsa group.

Randy aka Ranch Rat

Fantastic performance by a very talented artist
I took this CD to all my massages at Canyon Ranch last month. The massueses went wild for it so I bought 10 copies as gifts for them. They all love it. I have noticed that it even slows my pulse rate whenever it is playing. It is very seductive and spirtiual as well.
