A Tabata Workout Followed by the peaceful music of Nathan Speir

This morning I really did not feel like doing a full 60 minute workout. I seriously considered only doing a light yoga workout. But the. I thought maybe a short 20 minute Tabata workout. So I created one on the workout app that I use. It consisted of 8 – 20 second intervals followed by 10 second rest of the following

A Night of Native American Flute Music

Feather Stone and Light - R Carlos Nakai - my favorite Native American Flute player

From Six of My Favorite Native American Flute Players

 [espro-slider id=39390]

R Carlos Nakai – Canyon Trilogy, Emergence, Feather, Stone and Light

R. Carlos Nakai‘s music leads off and ends this playlist. He is my favorite Native American flute player. The three albums that I have taken tracks from are among my favorites. They have all been soundtracks for yoga exercising and also helped to keep me sane during stressful times at work. What I really like about Nakai’s music is that he is alwaus changing things up. Some albums are solo, some are with Will Clipman and William Eaton. I have several of the albums that he recorded with pianist Peter Kater.

Twang Tuesday Part II – Jupiter Coyote

Ok so maybe they’re not that twangy but they do have a banjo and fiddle and that’s close enough for me. Anyway the band that I listened to the longest and liked the most on the first listen yesterday was Jupiter Coyote and their album Waxing Moon and as usual these guys have been around forever, well at least 20 years and I’ve never heard of them! But then I just started listening to bands like Widespread Panic and New Monsoon so here’s some background from their website:

So one of the other types of music that I listen to at work when background music without lyrics is needed or at times of stress is American Native Flute. My favorite artist is R. Carlos Nakai.

One artist who I have listened to a little is Mary Youngblood , but the other day I downloaded onto the mp3 player her 2002 release Beneath the Raven Moon and I have a new Native American flutist to listen to! Here’s what her website says about the album which one a Grammy in 2003
