The winter inspired album features twelve new, original songs and one spoken-word composition consisting of beautiful instrumental arrangements with an indigenous flavor. This album might become one of your favorites – not only during the holiday season, but all year round.
This soulful contemporary instrumental recording, that blends Native American flutes, synthesizers, piano, strings, chimes, percussion, bells and nature sounds and some voice is Wolfheart’s third solo album and was produced, composed, arranged and performed by Wolfsheart and Gigi Skokan.
The January full moon got its name “Wolf Moon” from the wolves that used to howl outside the Indian villages on cold, snowy, winter nights…
The sound landscape invokes the atmosphere of white snow, the lighting of fires and of dreamy melodies which are a musical tribute to the spirit of winter and take the listener on a spiritual and emotional journey.
The peaceful and soothing collection of contemporary music with the enchanting sound of the Native American Flute and instrumental renderings of meditative and relaxation tunes is perfect for creating a seasonal atmosphere for some quiet, cozy winter evenings.
“When snow blows like spirits in the wind” …
this album of hauntingly beautiful songs will bring a sense of peace, calm and harmony to crackling fires at home.
Released : 2012
