What people are saying
Om Tare is a composition I feel I have heard in chant form before, but the inventive twist placed on the composition by flute performer Chris Gurniak is a revelation.
There is a certain vibrancy within her performance that makes this song come alive and Om Tare proves for her to have been a splendid choice to have played.
The light but extremely rhythmic percussion is perfect, giving it an eastern energy, but the flute enables the composition to cross the boundaries, thus making it more accessible for the general listener.
Om Tare by Chris Gurniak is a delightfully fresh and colourfully pulsating arrangement, which fans of both the flute as an instrument, and evocative mantras are going to love.
When Chris plays the flute something magical happens. The sweet simple melodies surround you and you start to dissolve into the sound, letting go of stress both in the body and mind, relaxing more fully into the moment. Chris has a gift to share and that gift is her flute playing.
Congratulations Chris on the release of your CD. As the name infers, it is simply wonderful. The hauntingly beautiful sound of your flute brings so much peace to my day. I listen while I am cooking, driving, meditating or babysitting my grandbabies. It is truly a work of "heart". It was so lovely to hear it played during yoga class at Blossoming Lotus. I hope that you are considering putting out another CD in the future. Thank you for your gift of music.
Chris's flute playing helps to restore a sense of calm and balance. Absolutely love it!
When I first heard you play a song on your flute at my studio, I got goosebumps and tears came to my eyes. The music you played touched a place in my heart that felt like home. I'll never forget it. I'm certain that meditation circles and yoga classes will incorporate your beautiful creations enhancing the healing journey.
Simple Wonders is the new favorite CD in my family. We listen to it to begin our day in a peaceful way and for relaxing in the evening. I love incorporating Chris's music into my yoga classes. It brings a feeling of comfort to everyone in the room. This is our most popular gift to give to family and friends this year! Thank you Chris for sharing your beautiful talent!
Chris’s C.D. Simple Wonders is a regular source of calming inspiration while I work in my art studio. While I work on my pottery wheel I often use this beautiful and refreshing music to help deepen my breath and open my creativity.
Thank you Chris for the musical gift you are sharing with the world.

I just love Chris Guniak's CD Simple Wonders! It was introduced to me by a friend as she had it playing at her place of work and I became totally entranced with the melodies. I am very partial to Native Flute playing and I rank this with the best! I have a habitual meditation practice and find this is a beautiful soundtrack to listen to. My 6year old son loves to go to sleep listening to the soothing sounds of her beautiful playing as well. I am very thankful to have crossed paths with this CD and the Artist. Thank You for Bringing Balance and Harmony to us through your Flute.
