Shamans Market Great Finds

New Age/World Music composer Grayhawk’s visionary and ambitious album, Voice of the Ancestors, serves as a triumphant conclusion to his Shamanic Trilogy which began with Shaman Journey and continued with Blissful Magic – Spiral of the Celtic Mysteries. 

Unprecedented in scope, Voice of the Ancestors, seduces the listener with eight emotionally-rich world-new age tracks that begins with three intimate trios, Transcendent SoulThe Banteay Srei Temple & Guardians of Goddess Thien Hau, featuring GRAMMY® WINNER Wouter Kellerman’s flute, Amy Shulman’s concert harp & the exotic Asian dan bau performed by its greatest master,
Hai Phuong. 

Complementing Grayhawk’s state-of-the-art keyboard & synthesizer sonorities, we are graced on the title track, Voice of the Ancestors, with the vocal enchantments & native flutes of Windwalker, the undulating, sensual worldbeat percussion of Brad Dutz, the ambient guitar of David Vito Gregoli, Karen Olson’s masterful viola, Jill Haley’s exquisite english horn & oboe, the gift of Kirsten Vogelsang’s violin-cello and the incomparable vocal interpretations of
Randy Crenshaw. 

Then, in a surprising shift, the thunderous power of Peace Prayer  unleashes 160 tracks of invocation in English, Hebrew, Farsi & Arabic to all who will listen. The unparalleled, multilingual blend of voices performed with passionate professional precision by musical sages GRAMMY® WINNER  Darlene Koldenhoven, Randy Crenshaw, Ofir Engel (A.K.A. Queen Ofir) and Bahman Mojallal is so harmonious that we feel hope in our hearts that peace will break out worldwide. 

Finally, the listener can relax into the luxury of Ambient Meditation to relish a free-form improvisational sonic temple based on the themes and textures developed throughout Voice of the Ancestors. 

  • Grayhawk was in the last class of the Latin-speaking altar boys who grew up to be a practicing Wiccan, devoted to Earth-centered Spirituality that began with a Visionquest with Native American elders during the time of the Harmonic Convergence. This experience inspired the first segment of his Shamanic TrilogyShaman Journey recorded with the late, New Age/Jazz icon, Paul Horn and fellow New Age veteran, David Darling. Next came the compelling &  binding spell of Blissful Magic: Spiral of the Celtic Mysteries, an eco-warrior tour de force inspired by the activism of Redwood Summer. A full circle has been realized  with Voice of the Ancestors serving as “a triumphant conclusion to Grayhawk’s Shamanic Trilogy” (Bill Binkelman – Wind & Wire). Grayhawk’s music is presented live with The Grayhawk Consort and has won numerous international awards, including:  the One World Music Radio OWMR Best Album of the Year Award 2019 (All genres), the 2020 COVR People’s Choice Award in Audio & Visual, the OWMR Best New Age Album Award 2019, three 2020 COVR Gold Winner Visionary Awards in the World Fusion MusicMultimedia Music and Film categories and has been Winner of 10 Indie Music Channel Awards and won the #1 Best New Age Music Album 2019 by New Age Music Guide.
