To ancient Native Americans the Kiva was a church within the womb of the earth. The Kiva symbolized the mythic underground realm from which the first human beings emerged. The Kiva was a place of remembrance, of healing, of meditation on the origins and destinies of the tribe. For composers Steve Roach, Michael Stearns, and Ron Sunsinger, Kiva is a realm of pure sound shaped into a powerful journey that transforms the everyday world into a conduit for the extraordinary. True shamanic music: Actual peyote and ayahuasca ceremonies provide the foundation for this collaboration. Not for the weak at heart.
