Katsina Dances

By Jared Isaac Aragón. For Native American Flute (or concert flute or oboe) and Organ in four movements. Flute part included.

Having witnessed several Hopi katsina dances, this music describes the emotions felt while attending these sacred rituals. I make no effort to imitate the sounds and songs heard at these dances, instead the piece describes a more introspective reflection of the dances.
