Robert Mirabal: Taos Tales$18.95
Robert Mirabal brings a certain sensuality to his music that compels every listener to contemplate his message. Cellos are used like jazz instruments and electric guitars are used in only the most graceful way. His vocals, sung in Tiwa have a great intensity to them. The history and drama of the surrounding pueblos are all brought to life in this amazing collection of songs so well crafted they require several listenings to fully appreciate. He's a composer, singer, arranger, actor, screenwriter and producer. His appearance on three PBS specials have done nothing but help make him the artist with the fastest growing sales we've ever seen.
The alchemical magic of Mirabal’s solo flute melodies intertwines effortlessly with percussion, didjeridoo, ambient keyboards and guitar. Many cuts are orchestrated, contemporary pieces with sweeping but gentle instrumentation. Several cuts are from albums previously only available on tape. His music is a soothing reminder of the great beauty and harmony around us.
Song Carrier offers material from Mirabal’s three earlier releases, re-mixed and re-mastered. A member of the Taos Pueblo tribe, his life has centered around music and art as a way of worship and respect for all beings. Since his first public performance at the age of 13, Mirabal has been a prolific musician, composer, painter and author. In addition to hand-crafted native flutes, he uses rattles, rainstick, drums, and crow feathers on this album. This collection of music offers a variety of sensory experiences that only a master like Mirabal can create.

About Robert Mirabal
"There's always a flute player in every tribe. I never would have guessed it at the time, but I've become that flute player." The tribe is the Taos Pueblo. The time was when Robert was 18 and he encountered for the first time, the Native American flute Now, his handcrafted flutes are in the Smithsonian National Museum.
From the powwow auction where he saw that first flute, to Japan, England and all the world, Robert plays with the noble purpose of honoring the land, his family, his ancestors and his tribe who have occupied the same area of Northern New Mexico for over a thousand years. While deeply aware of his heritage, Robert looks at the responsibility universally: "I offer my work as a healing for the human spirit and a rememberence of why we are all here together."
In addition to the music and instruments he creates, Robert is also a celebrated painter, poet and playwright. He is the author of A Skeleton of a Bridge, a book of poetry, prose and short stories. He has lent his words and insights to several educational and documentary films, including two narrated by Robert Redford, "Silent Witness" and "Sacred Sites." He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Award and the New York Dance and Performer's "Bessie" Award for composition. Robert has also been named SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR twice in 1998 and again in 1999 at the annual Native American Music Awards.

Robert Mirabal "Pueblo Christmas"
Won "Best Male Artist 2007" Native American Music Awards!
This collection of classic Christmas Carols was specially arranged and recorded at Taos Pueblo. As you listen, remember that many of these songs became popular during the 19th Century, a time of great change in America. But this was the music of the people; beautiful, uplifting and inspiring. I hope you enjoy this unique presentation of sound and holiday spirit... Robert
"People ask me why I've made a Christmas album after all the struggles between Indigenous Peoples and Christianity. My answer is that I needed to address the contradictions. Our Native religion is based on Nature and is a 24/7, 365-day spiritual concept, but then on the corner there's a Catholic Church. For many Americans, Christmas is a time when they become concious of spirituality, and I wanted to connect our cultures at this special time. No matter what the politics were like when these songs were first heard, the music was created to fill the listener with love, hope and joy. They show that beauty can go beyond conflict to a place where music is the hero." ~ Robert Mirabal
