While Jorge Reyes might be the musical equivalent of Castaneda's Don Juan, Stearns (synths) and Sunsinger (native flutes and field recordings) might be Casteneda themselves. Sorcerer is a magical meeting with a brujo from start to finish and Stearns and Sunsinger are our guides. From the location recordings and deep hum of descending night on the initiatory "Little Smoke" to the epiphanous and holy "Cicharisca: Finding the Path with Heart," this is an expansive journey of ethno-ambience and indigenous wisdom.
