A longform, three-song journey into one of the deeply mystical places of America’s heartland.A lovely blend of ceremonial space and mystery woven together with drifting keyboard beds, flutes, voice, medicine drum, shell rattles, pot shards, muted voices, flutes and field recordings.Steve Brand about this album : “‘Cahokia’ was originally self-released in early 2007 on CDBaby.com, then again in it’s re-worked, re-mastered form in 2009 on another label. This 2011 re-release is on Brand’s own label, Pioneer Light Music (cover photo, Jill brand). In the intervening years, I’ve been refining, re-working and re-mastering the album. As with many sacred places I’ve been fortunate enough to visit, I have a deep connection with Cahokia, and this album reflects the sense of mystique and presence of this ancient and powerful place. This is no nostalgic recreation of the music of a long dead culture, but an aural record of my own feelings, sensations and inner-visions impressed upon me by the place and it’s spirit.”
