AllMusic Review by

This sampler of various artists on the Talking Taco label features music by Alice Gomez, The Native Flute Ensemble, Eric Casillas, The Mesa Music Consort, Marilyn Rife and Ben Tavera King. Instrumentation ranges from the traditional Native American flutes and ceremonial percussion of the Native American Ensemble to the chant and flute music of Eric Casillas. The appropriate title refers to the flute players that were, according to Native American lore, innovative masters of their instruments, transforming wind into magical expressions of love and healing.
