Xochimoki's new CD, "Land of the Feathered Serpent" has over an hourof music performed on ancient Aztek and Mayan instruments. It has been compiled from the best of our recordings in the 1980's, previously only available on cassette. It also includes music that was created for an animated film by Patricia Amlin entitled "Popol Vuh - The Creation Myth of the Maya" (1990) that has aired many times on PBS. All of the music has been re-edited and digitally remastered, and some here-to-fore unreleased music is also part of this release.

The CD, booklet, and covers are illustrated with original artwork based on pre-Columbian motifs. The highly informative booklet is in both English and Spanish, and includes a Nahuatl and Mayan glossary of terms .

Titles of various tracks on the CD refer to ancient Mayan ceremonial centers, sacred Aztek volcanoes, cosmologies and cultural traditions of the native peoples of Mesoamerica. The music was inspired through the living experience of connection to these cultural/spiritual roots.

QUETZAL:
Music from the Heart of Maya
 

Primal music created for dance ritual and inner voyaging. Ancient Mayan and Aztec clay flutes are combined with indigenous Andean instruments such as the panpipes, kena, and charango. Together with sonorous bass bamboo flutes, conch shell trumpets, and distant voices chanting resonant tones, the effect is deeply hypnotic. The compositions are based on the cosmologies of Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, bringer of arts and knowledge to all humanity. This recording celebrates his return.

Xochimoki:
Flower of the Ancient Ones
 

This music arises out of the native spirituality of all the Americas from North to South. Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican instrumental pieces are interfaced with uplifting songs using voice, guitar, piano, and South American flutes. Titles like “Vision Quest”, “Elemental Dance”, and “Dreamseeker” are sung with moving words about the direct experience of divinity in nature. Eclectic and full of vitality, this music is ideal for those seeking inspiration through the native traditions of the Western Hemisphere.
