Of Navajo-Ute heritage, R. Carlos Nakai is the world's premier performer of the Native American flute. Originally trained in classical trumpet and music theory, Nakai was given a traditional cedar wood flute as a gift and challenged to see what he could do with it.

Nakai began playing the traditional Native American flute in the early 1980s and released more than 50 albums in his career (with 40 on the Canyon Records label). Nakai has sold more than 4.3 million albums for Canyon Records and earned two Gold Records for Canyon Trilogy and Earth Spirit. In 2014, Canyon Trilogy reached Platinum (over 1 million units sold), the first ever for a Native American artist performing traditional solo flute music. In addition to his solo appearances throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan, Nakai has worked with guitarist William Eaton, flutist Paul Horn, composers James DeMars and Phillip Glass and various symphony orchestras.

While well-grounded in the traditional uses of the flute, Nakai has explored new musical settings including new age, world-beat jazz and classical. His cross-cultural collaborations have included an album with the Wind Travelin' Band, a Japanese folk ensemble and Tibetan flutist and singer Nawang Khechog on several productions including “In A Distant Place .” Nakai has earned two gold records for “Canyon Trilogy ” and “Earth Spirit ” and has received eleven GRAMMY nominations in four different categories and earned a Governor’s Arts Award. Nakai’s career has been shaped by a desire to communicate a sense of Native American culture and society that transcends the common stereotypes presented in mass media.

The R. Carlos Nakai, William Eaton & Will Clipman trio is a summit meeting of master musicians. From its inception, this trio has been committed to improvisation - the fine art of crafting music directly from the heart or through composing.

The ancient melodies of Nakai's native American cedar flutes are enveloped in the sophisticated harmonic and chordal timbres of Eaton's uniquely handcrafted multi-stringed instruments. Both musicians are inbued with a fluid pulse arriving out of Clipman's pan-global percussion.

R. Carlos Nakai, the world’s premier Native American flutist, has 27 albums to his credit and numerous Grammy nominations. His beautiful interpretations touch the hearts of music lovers worldwide.

Slack key guitar virtuoso, Keola Beamer is one of Hawai’i’s most beloved performers. The recipient of multiple Na Hoku Hanahono awards (Hawaiian Gramm’s), his best-selling CD’s are innovative and enthralling.
