Song of the Morning Star

Carlos Nakai plays some of the most hauntingly beautiful music I’ve ever heard. Carlos is a Navaho-Ute Indian flute player. I first heard his music at Mt. Irenaeus a number of years ago. Initially it was used in conjunction with centering prayer at the Mountain. Since that time I’ve purchased several of Carlos’ albums. Song of the Morning Star is a hauntingly beautiful melody and reminds me not only of Mt. Irenaeus but also of the desert southwest and Arizona in particular. I bought my first Carlos Nakai album on a trip to Sedona, Arizona in 2001.
