RITUAL is a thing of beauty, flowing from one track to the other . . . there is something deeper going on here, a melding of intelligence with heart, a musical hybrid that speaks to both the listener’s mind and the listener’s soul. Superb . . . sublime, Ritual will almost certainly land on many critics’ Top 10 lists for 2014.

Elemental in nature, it invokes peace no matter how busy you are. Take a moment. Just listen. Just be.
~New Age Music Reviews , Keith Hannaleck
Veteran Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai and new age music maestro Peter Kater collaborated on a wealth of projects during the 90s that merged their considerable talents. Now, for the first time in over ten years, the pair reunite to present a new set of soulful compositions. The beauty of the Kater/Nakai pairing was the way they complimented each other – Nakai’s tranquil wooden flute tones lend the music a gentle depth, while Kater’s sweeping melodies elevate the majestic qualities of the Nakai’s harmonies. RITUAL is a true return to form – intimate compositions, beautiful musicianship and a meditative air that is very pleasing, capturing all of the elements that make this pair’s musical collaborations so enthralling. Reed player Paul McCandless, vocalist Trish Bowden and cellist Jaques Morelenbaum also lend their talents to the mix, adding richness to the music.
