Wolf Sister is one of the smoothest and sweetest new age discs ever, regardless of style. Marina Raye's atmospheres are perfect blends of acoustics and nature samples with subtle electronics. Gentle rhythms compliment the sound design elegantly and soulfully. Michael Graham Allen, of Coyote Oldman, says, "Marina Raye speaks through her flutes with god heart and a strong sweet voice." These balanced soundscapes have organic textures and dynamic timbres. There are no holes and no missing pieces. Raye has covered the entire spectrum. The compositions speak from the heart and to the heart. Raye is --truly -- "The feminine voice of the Native American flute." This disc has few peers and few are at Raye's level. Coyote Oldman, Douglas Spotted Eagle and Joanne Shenandoah are among those artists at these heights.
