About Jesse - Diana James
The story of my friend & brother of the heart Jesse, is a story of Spirit, finding joyous expression in the life-paths of individual human beings, who have actualized their dreams. As a native chamorru of the Mariana Islands, Jesse lived his early years on a tropical territory of the U.S. in the northern pacific. Jesse remembers playing in the island bamboo groves as a child at the age of 4, and being treated by elders skilled in herbal medicine when he was ill. It was then, that he began to hear the melodies from within, that 'danced in his heart'.
Jesse has lived and ventured in America, traveling through every state since 1976. The incredible vastness of the land moved him to continue to explore. Finally, in the red canyons of Sedona Arizona, Jesse felt he had come home. His move to Sedona in June of 91, led to profound experiences that began to unfold. Inspired by the Stillness of the canyons, that first year playing flutes, Jesse echoed the inherent peace of the heart. In 92, he began to make & named each flute to reflect that.
Then soon after, Jesse discovered nature voices in his flutes, also to sing his native language. By 1993, Jesse began sharing throughout the United States & Internationally, his Heartfelt Presentation: bamboo flutes, story, poetry & nature voices. In Jan of 95, he was invited to present at a Yoga for World Peace Conference in Jerusalem, Israel. In 1996 through 2002, he toured several times in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. As Jesse continues to share, somehow, he is able to play & create native american style flutes, from bamboo growing wild in Sedona.
Yet to read or write music, Jesse has not trained in understanding technical music theory. His songs come from the heart, each one affecting his audiences in a unique way. Each flute has its own name and song. From these flutes, comes the sounds of nature: the doves, quails, loons, hawk, owl, seagulls, dolphins, whales, coyotes, wolf, elk & more.
