Visions & Healing
Guitarist Ben Tavera King, a new age/world music veteran, first won a national reputation via such Billboard charting hits as \'Coyote Moon\' and \'Desert Dreams. On \'Visions & Healing\' he continues that fruitful fusion of Latino & Native American music. The CD features a unique combination of the Native American flute and 12-string guitar reflecting a musical fusion among the Native people\'s of the Western hemisphere. The sound of the Native American flute is added by members of the nationally-known group, The Native Flute Ensemble. The guitar style on \'Visions & Healing\' reflects the distinctive tuning and approach found to the guitar in various Native communities from the Andes to Mexico\'s Sonoran desert. Most often the music is used by tribal \'medicine men\' in healing ceremonies and rituals.
