Awakening! Passion! Excitement! This is the energy of music written during one of the most exciting and challenging times of my life. The year was 1987 and I journeyed into the Mayan lands of Mexico for the first time. WOW! Music was awakened inside of me and I began to compose, record and perform music from my own inner world. The album of Mayan Dream emerged . . . and I created music for the first time on the Kurzweil keyboard, expressing with the Kurzweil strings, flute, keyboard, bells the intensity of the energy of the Mayan Lands.
Dancers of the Flame came into being around eight years later. I was exploring an immense cave in the Yucatan Peninsula with a Mayan guide and a group of artists. We were privileged to hear the sound of "tuned" stalactites hanging from the ceiling of the cave, and see the places where ancient peoples danced the sacred fire of their purpose. You will hear the "om" of creative source, and the sounds of rain stick and ancient conch flute. As always, I bring in the melodies of the dance by playing my beloved Kurzweil keyboard.
