As an indigenous person, a father and a lover of nature, Mike's songs are about life through his eyes. The love songs he plays share an expression of his heart through the flute. "When you listen to this collection of songs, you hear beautiful music. When I listen to the songs, I can hear and see Mike Serna. I hear him laugh - I see his bright smile - I see him shifting his weight on his feet as he plays - swaying with the long notes, bobbing to the quick notes. Even though he has on sunglasses, I know he's closing his eyes and he's pulling the music we hear straight from his heart . . . from his soul." Annie Humphrey, two-time Nammy winner "Outpouring his soul in music, Mike Serna creates a magic that touches the hearts of his audience . . ." flyingman, WAWL, "Ancestral Rhythms"
