This collection of improvisational vocal music emerges from a deep winter landscape of mountains and rushing river, countless bright storytelling stars in the darkest night sky, and from the rocks and roots and wanderings in this place of beginnings.
In addition to our voices, a few pieces are accompanied by different instruments: singing bowl, drum, sruti box, harp. One piece is a lush oboe and violin duet, accompanied by voice.
Some of the tracks are ancient chants. You may recognize "Porimamine, Porisamine" or "Fanga" from West Africa, or a song honoring the four directions from our own Turtle Island. There is a sweet American Shaker dance song that we all know and love.
The songs--many without words--are expressions of the intimate connection with Nature, Mystery, and with each other, and of the surprises and wonders of our journey.
" … Then I went on Jane’s site to listen to her deer songs and was blown away — they are BEAUTIFUL! … I immediately downloaded the MP3 of her album, Streaming In Stone. As she puts it, the songs on her site help you ‘… receive harmony, sweetness, connection with Mother Earth & with Spirit, and with our deepest roots and being.’ They do, indeed!"
– Suzanne Falter, best-selling self-help author, speaker, and singer
