Album Notes
A sense of sacred space begins wherever you happen to be. For many of the indigenous peoples of North America, that is the forest. This album seeks to honor the forest world and all the beings that live there. The music was directly inspired by sacred wooded places that I visit regularly, including Blackwater Refuge near Cambridge, Maryland; White Oak Canyon in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia; Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland; and our own backyard.

Ron Warren - from liner notes


"Ron Warren's debut CD is a rare pleasure. Filled with inspired percussion, expertly played flute, and some pretty cool effects..." Jeff Ball, NAMA winning flutist

"I like the variety of tempos and instrumentation on the CD and the use of the extended scale for interesting and unpredictable melodies. Too many CD's get one listen and then a place on the shelf. His gets a repeat listening!"
Joan Johannes, Voice of the Wind (International Native American Flute Association Journal)

"Gazebo is my favorite track and is regularly featured on my online station. Brilliant...Radiant...Sparkling."
Jada Greenway, Acoustic Paradise,

about Ron...

Ron Warren began a transforming journey with the Native American flute less about five years ago. This journey began simply and tentatively as a way to honor his father's ancestors. Inspired by the vision of artists such as R.C. Nakai, Coyote Oldman, Jeff Ball and Mark Holland, Ron soon began his own search for a music which honors the flute tradition but also welcomes this beautiful instrument into the 21st century. He has been guided by the flutes themselves and by spending time in special sacred places like Blackwater Refuge, White Oak Canyon and Brookside Gardens. The flute has become for him not only a primary means of artistic and self expression but a pathway to meditation and healing.

Ron has had the privilege of performing with Native American Music Award winning flutist Jeff Ball at Musical Echoes Native Flute gathering in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. He has also taken part in a concert and educational program taped for overseas broadcast by Voice of America. He performs regularly at powwows and festivals throughout the U.S.



to write a review


This flute is not distorted. The downward trailing has to do with the way it is
The Native American flute is not "distorted" and when you hear the end of a phrase go down (flatten out), it is done by the flutist and is part of characteristic style of Native American flute playing.

The sounds clips are great and I'm planning to buy this CD.

Soothing, makes music of the imperfect
Heartbeats of the Forest World combines native American flutes with drums, guitar, and keyboard in the gentlest polyphony. Downward trailing at the ends of phrases reflects the irregular shape of each handmade flute, and at first irks ears tuned by exposure to perfectly straight transverse silver flutes. But Warren wraps these trailings into accompanying tones, making music of the imperfect. The results are deep soothing.

Great work on the distorted flute.
Very peaceful and natural, but with a modern twist. The distorted flute produces a great sound. Excellent addition to the style :)

It's a real pleasure to listen to Ron Warren music. It's really relaxing and peaceful. The sound of the native american flute is amazing.

Relaxing, Soothing, Job Well Done
I heard Ron Warren where I work during national American Indian week and bought this CD from Ron's table for my wife, a massage therapist, to play when treating her clients. This order was for three more copies to give to other friends and neighbors. If Enya's getting a little long in the tooth for ya, this'll do the job. Good work, Ron.


Actually, there is distortion
I have listened to this cd often and I know for a fact that in the tracks titled "Skywoman", they have used an engineering technique to distort the sound and make it sound like an electric guitar. It is absolutely brilliant...
