Hanna Politis, proprietor of Beans in the Belfry, says this about “Windtalker’
s” amazing show.
Motz always captures our audience with his hauntingly beautiful Native American flute melodies. Accompanied by stunning nature slides from the Southwest, he puts the audience into a serene and happy mood. This is one of our most successful shows and both local and others come from long distances for the performance."
Her husband, Jim Politis agrees.
"I came to hear the program out of curiosity but left very impressed and very moved. The combination of the traditional music with the visuals from many of the traditional home lands and hunting grounds of Native Americans is a unique experience. It is done so simply, yet profoundly, that anyone with eyes and ears learn as they share the experience.”
For years, “Windtalker”
has been delighting audiences with his special brand of music at festivals, state and national parks, coffee houses, wineries, senior living facilities, schools, churches, private parties and other intimate venues. He was also the guest performer for a moonlight tour held by the National Park Service at New Mexico's Pueblo Bonito ruins at Chaco Canyon National Historical Park and numerous songs from his latest CD, “Canyon Whispers,” can be heard on several popular internet radio stations, as well as on Pandora. He now brings his captivating show back to Beans in the Belfry Meeting Place and Café.
As an advocate for Native Americans, “Windtalker”
will donate a portion of the proceeds from this performance to “Futures for Children,” a highly-respected charity that provides educational and leadership opportunities for Native American children on reservations in the Southwest.
“For years I have been searching for a way to put my passion for Native American people into action in a meaningful and enduring way. I am humbled and honored by this opportunity to support “Futures for Children’s”
mission and vision by donating a portion of the revenue from my performances, including sales of CDs, DVDs and books. By supporting me and my music, audiences will be helping Native American children escape the cycle of poverty, drug and alcohol addiction, and teen suicides that are rampant on the reservations. This support will provide hope and a bright future through a quality education and leadership development. As the saying goes, “Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach him to fish, and he can eat for a lifetime.” By giving Native American children the education and leadership skills they need to succeed, they help not only themselves but ensure the future of their communities and the rich heritage of their tribal cultures.”
