RAHBI CRAWFORD & PETER PHIPPEN
Rahbi is presently collaborating with Peter Phippen, A Grammy Award nominee and three-time Native American Music Award nominee.
When Grammy-nominated flutist, Peter Phippen teams up with “sound healer” Rahbi Crawford, who uses vibrations from her singing bowls to correspond with a person’s chakras—the body’s energy centers, they create deep, meditative, healing soundscapes for the soul.
Phippen and Crawford are 2014 Native American Music Award nominees. Phippen plays bamboo and wooden flutes, and Crawford plays crystal singing bowls. The music is intended to create a serene atmosphere.
“The echoing sound of the crystals reaches out, blending with the flute to ensnare the listener with a deep spiritual experience. Haunting and vast.”
- Dana Wright New Age Music Reviews
“I must admit I had never heard harmonics emerge from the speakers quite like this before. Although played at a moderate volume, I could physically feel the vibrations touch me as the music progressed.”
- RJ Lannan The Sounding Board
