Island of Bows - Navajo-Ute flutist Carlos Nakai with the Japanese group Wind Travelin' Band

Island of Bows

In this 1994 album, Navajo-Ute flutist Carlos Nakai collaborated with the Japanese group Wind Travelin' Band playing the shakuhachi, shamisen and koto. As stated in R. Carlos Nakai's bio on the Canyon Records website:

This collaboration came about according to Nakai because his Japanese cohorts were "...looking for new areas of musical performance... not strictly traditionally oriented."
