AllMusic Review by

On HEALING SONGS OF EARTH & SKY, Chief Sonne Reyna of the Yaqui-Coahuilteka nations joins with Steve Halpern, a leading composer and recording artist of music for relaxation and wellness, to create a cross-cultural collection of healing music influenced by Native American culture. On this recording, their first collaboration, the two acclaimed musicians perform healing songs and traditional melodies that touch the listener with a message of love and joy. The deep, hypnotic chants of Chief Reyna resonate with beauty and power, renewing the ancient relationship humans once had with the earth. With HEALING SONGS OF EARTH & SKY, Reyna seeks to reclaim and celebrate the natural world and the role humans play within it as conscious, living beings. Halpern has written brilliant arrangements for both the original material and the traditional songs, that surprise the listener with their complexity, while providing a solid, percussive base. Halpern takes pride in slowly building momentum with atmospheres and textures that add a contemporary spirit to the music while still maintaining the purity of Reyna's performance.
