Golana

Multi Native American Music Award (NAMA)
& Indian Summer Music Award (ISMA) Winner


Love & Kindness
NAMA (Native American Music Awards) and ISMA (Indian Summer Music Awards) winner, Golana´, acclaimed master of the Native American flute returns with his ninth album Love & Kindness, featuring Peter Kater on piano.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to the American Cancer Society.


“Gentle, emotional flute music is Golana´’s calling card. Over the course of nine albums, he has proven that he is not only an excellent flutist with beautiful tone, but also that he is a skilled composer whose music echoes the sentiments that make up this album’s title - LOVE AND KINDNESS. This set of eleven compositions features songs that are dreamy and wistful, bearing elements of reflection, joy and utmost peace. Golana´’s flute is central on each track, standing strong in the foreground. Providing accent is a backdrop that includes Peter Kater on piano, David Chamberlain on acoustic guitar, Cameron Stone on cello and Robert Anderson on violin. Highlights like “Remembering You” and “A Sacred Place” are soft and touching - the kind of music that beckons you to close your eyes and just “be”.”

Native American Music
Award WINNER!! Best New Age Album

Indian Summer Music
Award WINNER!! Best Traditional Instrumental Song “Amazing Grace”

These hymns have been a source of comfort and inspiration for our family. My parents raised me on this music and tried by their loving example to show me the “good road”, a road I have found so hard across the years to stay upon. Throughout my life I turned to this music when I was in need. Over the years, on many a sleepless night, I could be found alone in my room, playing and singing these hymns.

Indian Summer Music Award
WINNER!! Best Contemporary Instrumental

Nominee Best Male Artist

Native American Music Award
Nominee Best Compilation


“Drawing for this release from six previous CDs, Native American flute player Golana´ set out to release a collection of his most relaxing and meditative tracks — and he has certainly succeeded. These 11 songs are a musical balm, soothing the heart and easing the mind. The opening (“Call to Prayer”) and closing (“Magic Canyons”) tracks are solo flute meditations while the remaining nine feature other assorted instruments including keyboards, cello, violin, acoustic guitar, piano, and muted hand drums. While maintaining a serene mood throughout, the music's song-by-song character varies: New Age (“Lone Pine Canyon”), rural folkish (“Beloved"), and cinematic (“Cloud's Rest”). Regardless of Golana´’s chosen musical motif, First Light aptly illustrates how special an artist he is and just why his appeal is so broad.”

Native American Music Award WINNER!! Best Instrumental Album

Native American Music Award
Nominee Record of the Year

Indian Summer Music Award
Nominee Best Contemporary Instrumental

Indian Summer Music Award
Nominee Best Spiritual Music


“Golana´ is a master of the Native American flute who has been making music for over a decade, and has racked up ten NAMMY nominations in the process. One of the factors that makes his music so enjoyable is that his music has a lot of heart in it, not to mention a pervading sense of serenity. Both of those qualities are plentiful on MIRROR LAKE, which was inspired by the scenic mountainscapes of Southern California. Golana´’s flute is front and center on each of these compositions, with backing from Charlie Bisharat on violin, David Chamberlin on keyboards, Cameron Stone on cello and Scott Hartley and Rodger Whitten on piano. The mix of Native influences and classical instrumentation gives the music a nice blend of elegance and earthiness that will take you to a place of tranquility.”

“We have reviewed Feather On The Wind, his latest release, and Walk Between Worlds, and have found them to be among the best examples of the native flute we have heard. This is truly music that the heart can feel.”

Jim Praytor (Standing Fox) - Great Circle News

“I don’t believe I have ever heard anything lovlier in my life!! I sat in sort of a trance the entire CD with big tears in my eyes. Scott’s technique with the Native American flute is so much richer and fuller than other NA flute players and the accompanying instruments make such a difference in the total presentation of the music. I didn’t think Walk Between Worlds could be beaten but Scott did it.”

“...a New Age album that is like a soundtrack to every man’s essential journey”

Music Connection

“...Golana´’s ten track album of Native American flute compositions redefines the genre”

Alternatives Magazine

“......It’s soooo beautiful. I love the mix of harp and Native American flute. Actually, I love everything they've done here. It’s melodic, contemporary and still haunting in that lovely way we all expect from this genre. I would say that it’s probably the first true crossover Native American CD. It’s pop influenced Native music, rather than Native influenced pop music. Thanks for sending such a winner!”
