Winds of Honor is much more than standard Native American fare. Gary Stroutsos embraced the spirituality and lifeblood of their culture after learning the cedar flute. Of particular interest to Stroutsos was the legend of Sitting Bull, one of the greatest leaders of all time. This disc, although performed largely by a non-Native American, is a set of deeply emotional and spiritual music. Such is the beauty and simplicity of Native American culture. It is holistic and universal. Any believer and practitioner can espouse this spirituality. This disc will appeal to fans of Native American music.
