Beautiful! I love those flutes.

thanks for such a creative (and respectful, if you will) approach on this. drums, flutes, bells & minimalism aren’t cliches when presented as you have done. my goal with the song was to remind the listener of the dignity & ingenuity & tenacious spirit of a culture that was 40,000 years old when columbus found it. i appreciate your heart-felt contribution to that end.

Beautiful track. You didn’t add anything that wasn’t necessary, and didn’t leave anything out.

Yes. I like this very much.

Very nice. Because of this song, I went to panu moon’s acappella, read the blurb, and went to read more about the Seminole chieftain, Coacoochee.

Atmospheric and haunting and I’m there - not sitting in a London suburb.

Great early music opening, and the simple percussion and the synth pad work well.

The bit of piano discord is nice but perhaps a bit piannisimo. The vocals are prominent and easy to understand.

The threading in of the recorder-like horn sounds is good.
Overall, I keep waiting for the various sounds to come up in the mix a bit. I understand, though, that you’re trying to use a delicate touch rather than go bombastic.

This is a very pretty mix, with your customary attention to detail and effective use of multiple elements. It’s very pretty, and spare in a good way. The vocals “fit” here. To me, if the instrumental were set on 4 out of 10 on some hypothetical scale, I would move it up to 5 out of 10, and I might also fade in and fade out the atmospheres and horn to give it a weaving feel. But that’s just an idea—in real life, I could not do anything as subtle as this.

I am glad you post here because your mixes always get me thinking.
