Deep Roots Hidden Waters is a set of deep Native American ambience from Deborah Martin. It is one of the defining moments in Spotted Peccary's quest to define modern native music. Martin's sound-design skills are in top form on this CD. She plays the musical elements off each other to embrace the atmospheres. The stellar cast of supporting musicians contributes much to this project and the ambient textures flow smoothly. The minimalist timbres surround deep listeners; the ethnic acoustics top the soundscape deftly. Martin has achieved a true crossover form on this outstanding album. This CD will appeal to fans of Coyote Oldman, Douglas Spotted Eagle, and Spirit Nation. It is essential for fans of e-music, Native American music, and new age music.
