Four Great Winds - a journey through traditional and devotional song - glimmers with hope, burns with passion and sings of remembrance and reverence for the old ways of life. Peia's crystalline voice and heart -full delivery inspires and transports listeners to a magical world of true depth and beauty.
:For my Beloved Ancestors who lived close to the land and honored the Earth,
who came here in search of something better
and left me this tremendous sense of Wanderlust.
I have traveled the world over, longing for depth, beauty and music that makes the soul rise.
At times learning songs from the people, at times hearing them in the wind.
May this music kiss your ears, touch your soul and remind us how to live in balance with all life.
May you walk in beauty and remember your song.

The wild, wild wind blew you in,
your eyes shown of the days you've been gone
o'er the land, o'er the sea tell my Love of your great journey.
"Oh my Love I can not speak, beauty so immense words can not reach. Oh words they can not reach"
Must you then craft a song! Where words fall short music tells all.
Of the land, of the sea - oh my Love could you sing?
"I have seen the wide wind dancing with the new day sun,
and I have seen the way that the light dances on the water when the day is done. And I have known a people who love all that grows and bring the land back to life. And I have seen them sing in the fire and hear their one soul's song."
The wild, wild wind sang again
and called my heart to be o'er the land, o'er the sea
we began our journey. O'er the land or'er the sea, we began our great journey.

Blessed we are to dance on this ground with the rhythm of saints to carry the sound. We hold a prayer for the Earth, for the ones yet to come - May you walk in beauty and remember your song.
Remember why you came here. Remember your life is sacred. Remember why you came here, remember this life is sacred.
Track Name: Let that water wash over me
Holy Grace carry me far beyond the Baltic Sea,
Four Great Winds sing your song upon my path - I'm traveling on.
Oh my Love I see you near, your arms out stretched, your eyes so clear.
When I wake up from this beautiful sleep, you'll meet me there in the mystery.
Walk with me, take up my hand, we're going back to our great home land.
We'll row out to the water wide and deep, then we'll jump in and rest our feet.
Dissolve my name, lay down in the sea and let that water wash over me, Dissolve my name, lay down in the sea and let that water wash over me.
Holy Grace carry me far beyond the Baltic Sea, Four Great Winds sing your song upon my path, I'm traveling on.
