Pati Pellerito and Mark Holland

Cedar ‘n’ Sage Music

Native flutist Mark Holland’s long career spans many years and many styles of music. Dreamwalker is yet another addition to his illustrious discography. Sound-healing artist Pati Pellerito, who performs on a variety of tuned instruments (bowls, gongs, chimes, bells, and Kaizen drum), fuses her mystical tones and textures with Holland’s assorted flutes, including not just Native but also bansuri, Anasazi, and Buffalo Horn flute. The result is soothing, meditative music of the highest order. I have heard a lot of recordings with singing/crystal bowls, but Pellerito is a singular talent and Holland matches her mastery at every turn. This is a stunningly meditative, immersive, and truly cosmic recording.
