Jenkins, come together for an evening concert of
improvisation and ceremony. Playing ancient instruments
(condor bone flute, pututo, feather quill queña,

a deeper sense of aliveness, and whisper an invitation to
commune with the Spirit of Ayni. Recorded live at San
Francisco's Main Post Chapel in the Presidio, and
released in October 2004. "Ayni" means sacred
reciprocity in Quechua.
