|Absorbing Presentation Of The American Indian Flute Traditions
February 16, 2012
Posted in: CD Reviews
Remembering the Songs: Music Traditions from the Zuni, Navajo, and Salish
Remembering the Songs: Music Traditions from the Zuni, Navajo, and
Salish is a multimedia project with a music CD and a video documentary
produced by Salish educator Julie Cajune.
The film Remembering the Songs begins with an interview with American
Indian musician Fernando Cecillion, who discusses the endangered art of
flute-playing in the Zuni pueblo.
“The film explains the music,” says Cajune. “People that aren’t
familiar with music from traditional American Indian communities may
not know that most of the old music, the traditional music, had a
spiritual origin. So my purpose in this project was to try to
re-inspire young people to learn about their own traditions and to
maybe become interested again. Some of those traditions haven’t
Another enthralling character included in Remembering the Songs is Paul Thompson, a master Navajo (Dinť) flute maker.
The film also presents the work of the late Jerome Vanderburg, one of
the last Salish men who made and played traditional flutes. Vanderburg
and his wife Agnes were recorded by the Smithsonian Institution in the
early 1950s, singing and performing traditional flute music.
Remembering the Songs includes Gary Stroutsos’ version of a Salish love
song based on Vanderburg’s melodies. “I don’t think anybody in our
community makes those traditional flutes anymore,” says Cajune. “So my
idea was to try to re-inspire people to keep those traditions alive.”
The music disc is primarily instrumental and includes a mix or
traditional and modern flute performances by Fernando Cecillion, Gary
Stroutsos and Paul Thompson.
The Remembering the Songs film is an absorbing presentation of the
American Indian flute traditions of the American Southwest and

turnout! The Circle of Circles is a grassroots movement to help

Are you just starting
a new flute circle, or trying to figure out how to get one

in your Flute Circle membership and need ideas to help
jump-start the group? Would you like to organize a
concert or workshop and need help with logistics and
planning? These are just some of the many issues that will be
addressed in the Circle of Circles forum.

Clint Goss has
announced a new audio release: The
Listening Book and The Musical Life, by W. A. Mathieu. Many of
you have seen these books in our "Music Books" page, and also quotes
from this material on our "Some of Our Favourite Quotes" page at the
top of the "Articles" page.
The Listening Book was a landmark exploration of the world of sound and
music when it was released in 1991, opening the ears and mind of tens
of thousands of music students to a wider horizon of sound and
Clint purchased the book and was captured by it's approach to music and
listening. In 2004, he managed to get a copy of the audio cassette edition
of The Listening Book from England
and listened to it a dozen times. He was enriched by the words but a
bit sad that this great material was not available to a wider audience.
The philosophy and exercises are so organic and in tune with the
approach that many of us take with the NAF.
Last year the stars came into alignment. and Clint was able to get in
touch with the author, who was able to locate the master tapes and
purchase the rights to reissue The Listening Book (yes, he had to
purchase his own material). He also recorded an additional segment
reading from his second book, The Musical Life.
November 11th is the official release date for the 2-CD set of The
Listening Book and The Musical Life. However, advance copies should be
available for purchase within a week.
Clint has posted a dozen tracks from the set at the web site below, so

meets a boy named Frederick, the encounter changes both their lives.
The fable Frederick and the Flute
Maker is designed for children of second-grade through middle
school. Its magical
story is intertwined with the pre-history of the Oregon Coast and, in
particular, the history of Cannon Beach, home to Haystack Rock. It has
an underlying message adults can appreciate about reverence for the
natural wonder of the Oregon Coast. The
beautifully hardbound picture book comes with an audio book, and
benefits the Haystack Rock Awareness Program, which receives $1 from
Frederick and the Flute Maker
author Tricia Gates Brown is a poet, writer, and playwright who works
part-time as Program Director of the Cannon Beach History Center. The book is wonderfully
illustrated by Sally Lackaff, who spent her childhood in Cannon Beach
and who now works as an artist in Astoria, Oregon. She is known for murals and
illustrations visible around the north coast. Original music for the
audio-book was composed and recorded by Gary Stroutsos of Seattle,
Washington, with the help of Gary Lanz. Stroutsos' admiration for
the Oregon Coast inspired his most popular CD, "Pacific Moon," which
was born at Falcon Cove.
Frederick and the Flute Maker
is available in shops around
the Oregon Coast, and in Portland, Seattle, and other inland towns.

Spirit of Sacajawea
of Sacajawea is a new independent film by Naka Productions.The only
woman and the only Indian to travel with the Lewis and Clark
expedition, Sacajawea is one of the most revered women in American
history, yet her story has been romanticized and, often, misinterpreted
by non-natives. The Spirit of Sacajawea examines the many
controversies of her life, how her tribes were impacted, and how they
are surviving today. This is the story of Sacajawea from a Native
woman's perspective. The film is narrated by Tantoo Cardinal,
with the original musical score by Mary Youngblood and Jim Brock.
Mary Youngblood was nominated for an EMMY for her work on this project,
which is beautifully done.
