Carlos Nakai to Perform with Peter Kater at Awakening Kindness Concert

  Carlos Nakai                                     



Tibetan flutist Nawang Khechog, arrived on Maui on Sunday afternoon to perform five “Awakening Kindness” concerts with me around Hawai`i, May 11th – 15th. While only yesterday we casually walked the beach, today, in a jolting and unexpected turn of events, Nawang underwent five hours of surgery to remove a large blood clot from his brain. This was probably a complication from a serious auto accident he was in a few years back in India. Currently, he is in intensive care and the outlook is cautiously optimistic. I humbly ask that you send him your prayers and healing energy.

As an expression of kindness, Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai is flying to Maui to perform the Awakening Kindness tour with me in honor of Nawang. Carlos and I started recording and touring together some 22 years go and I introduced Nawang and Carlos a few years later. Ironically, this will be the first time in over 10 years that R. Carlos Nakai and I have performed together in concert. Please join Carlos and myself at our Maui performance with prayers and/or support of our dear brother, Nawang Khechog. – Peter Kater
