Conceived by McAnany and long time friend and colleague Philippe Saisse, Tribe fuses the authentic performances of the best Native American artists with Saisse' tasteful, emotional and sensual arrangements. What started as a simple conversation between two friends, two acclaimed and successful record producers, has become possibly the most compelling commercial musical expression of the Native American experience ever made available for the masses.
Ritual CD by Native American Flutist R Carlos Nakai and Pianist/Composer, Peter Kater, offers new age music and instrumental music for yoga music. Twice Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling pianist, Peter Kater has written the music for over seventy television and film programs including eleven On and Off-Broadway dramatic plays. His more than 30 critically acclaimed CD releases in 20 years range from Contemporary Jazz, World Fusion and Native American collaborations to full orchestrations and of course, his signature solo piano recordings. His PIANO recording, released in October of 2003 was just nominated for the Best New Age Album of 2004 Grammy Award. Receiving extensive world-wide airplay on a diverse array of radio formats, Katerâ€™s broad creative stroke has touched millions of hearts. Over the last few years his music was heard in the NBC broadcast of the 2000 & 2004 Summer Olympics; he collaborated with Kenny Loggins on his December CD and performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The majority of his albums have appeared in the Top 10 of National Airplay charts and in the Top 20 of Billboardâ€™s New Age and Contemporary Jazz charts. Of German birth and descent, Peter moved to New Jersey from Munich, Germany at the age of four and began studying the piano, at his motherâ€™s demand, when he was seven. Seven years of classical training led into playing Rock & Roll and Top 40 bands around New Jersey and New York while studying contemporary improvisation. Moving to Boulder, Colorado at the age of eighteen, he began a six-year period of playing only improvisationally in clubs throughout the Rocky Mountain region. â€œI didnâ€™t want to play anything the same way twice, being in the moment and spontaneous was very important to me, both musically and personallyâ€, said Kater. Since then he's recorded and performed nationally and internationally with some of the worlds most talented and accomplished musicians, actors, directors and authors.
Peter Kater is a three time Grammy nominee and prolific record producer who has collaborated with Native American artists for almost 20 years. His dynamic piano and inspiring keyboards are complimented by an exceptional lineup of guest artists who all combine to make these brilliant soundscapes a joyous union of melody and rhythm.
Music as Medicine CD by Nawang Khechog and R Carlos Nakai offer a gift of soothing flute melodies and curative Tibetan chants and Native American chants of healing music to the world. Born in Tibet, Nawang Khechog spent his earliest years as the child of nomads. In his boyhood he first learned to play the bamboo flute, an ancient instrument popular in rural villages throughout Tibet. After the brutal subjugation of Tibet by Chinese Communists in 1949, Nawang and his family escaped to India. There he studied meditation and Buddhist philosophy, a path he followed as a monk for eleven years - four of them as a hermit. In 1986, he emigrated to Australia where he first performed, and his recordings achieved bestseller status. Nawang is best known for his collaborations with Kitaro, including a world tour and performances on Kitaro's Grammy-nominated Enchanted Evening and Mandala albums. His live performances with Philip Glass, Paul Winter, Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant, and Baba Olatunji have received international acclaim.
