A RUMOR OF THE SUN is a musical collage of setting focused on the haunting voice of the Native American Flute. This beautiful and expressive instrument blends itself seamlessly into the worlds of jazz, ambient, and meditative, ranging from contemplative melodies to rhythmically charged improvisations.
