Lunas y Agua #7 / Ron Warren / 2020
Lunas y Agua
Lunas y Agua is a set of thirteen songs, each celebrating encounters, memories and musical musings from one Lunar Month here in central Florida. Each is “notated” as a Graphic Score that can be performed by any musician or group of musicians on the instruments of their choice. Of course, my first versions will be solos on Native Flutes. Lunas y Agua #1 will be released on YouTube in mid-March, 2021 with others to follow as they are ready. Visit my Blog page for more info about the project
Duos with myself
These songs for Native Flute and keyboard were inspired by the example of Ronald Roybal, a fine native Flute player and guitarist who released an album of duo songs, Eagle’s Journey Into Dawn, on which he played both flute and guitar. The first three are being mixed now, aiming for late summer and fall releases.
Duos with Leonard
Guitarist Leonard Stevens is one of my very favorite musicians. These four songs have been stuck in the studio for a while (through no fault of Leonard’s), but I hope to get them out in the next year or so.

New Music Festival 2021
from Whispers / Ron Warren / 2019
This fine group in Omaha, Nebraska offered me a rare opportunity to do an entire concert of my music conceived for Native Flute and Euro-Classical musicians. Alas, the concert was lost to Covid and has not been able to be rescheduled, but stay tuned. One never knows…
This April 19 concert has been restructured due to travel and quarantine issues. I will not be there, but my music will be. Stay tuned for details.

SUNDANCE with Janice Torres' great vocals on YouTube
When our ancestors created our Native American style flute, our “classical” flute, they designed it to play our music our way. But in their wisdom, they also created a musical instrument that is as expressive and versatile as any on the planet.
I love playing my flutes in traditional ways and in traditional settings like powwows. It has been an honor to be a featured artist at the National Museum of the American Indian and at Indig cultural gatherings around the country.
