"Flute Songs for a Blue Moon"

This album is a magical  journey of sound and spirit. Wonderfully melodic flute compositions are  interweaved with sounds of nature. Majestic... Magical... Relaxing and  Healing.

"In The Spirit"

Masterfully mixed with natural  sound elements, acoustic guitar and harp, "IN THE SPIRIT" evokes images of  a warrior's spirit from long ago past. Each track is a powerful journey  into the world of Native flute music and the spirit of the American Indian  flute......Soothing, Relaxing, Spiritual, Transcendental & Meditative!


“Shadowland Flute Songs” fills the night with the mystic sounds from a  dream. It is the cry for a vision. It is the sound of the raven dancing  across the sky. It is the spirit, and the strength in the voice of the  bear. It is the hummingbird on the wing. It is the feeling of the ghosts  in the darkness and the echoing voices that surround us. It is the cry of  war and the song of peace. It is the time when light is turning to  darkness.

"WindSong's Lullaby"

The Native American  flute trilogy by John De Boer  (Spirit of Thunder) includes: “Flute Songs  for a Blue Moon,” “In the Spirit,” and “Shadowland.” Together, the three  works capture both the external and internal landscapes in every mood,  ranging from the joyous, flitting dance of the dragonfly on a sunny day to  the dark, contemplative rumble of the bear at twilight. The stories that  accompany the music for the trilogy can be found in the book, The  Storytellers Flute, also by John De Boer.

John De Boer’s flute melodies are absolutely haunting on these recordings,  taking you on a journey to another realm, and another time. His music is  played from his heart, and when you hear his songs you can tell they were  born from deep within his soul.
