The Best Of Both Worlds Project is a collaboration between alternative recording artist Dean De Benedictis and Navajo recording artist D'Von Charley, and is subsequent to Dean's precursor project--Travels Rendered. Together, both musicians visit sacred places throughout the central Navajo reservation and record live native/ambient music, from beginning to end, right there on-site.  To understand the concept a little bit better, feel free to listen to some of the many songs they have created at these locations.  Free downloads of excerpts, promo material and extra songs from the project, as well as photos, will be occasionally posted here to help cause awareness of the project and its eventual CD release.  A documentary may also be a possibility for 2012.  

Suggestion: first, scroll to the bottom of this page, perusing the various features on the way down, then, at the bottom of this page, download our attached 17 minute podcast as well as our two music excerpts from the project. Enjoy listening to them. Then, when finished, visit the other pages on this site by going to the navigation bar on the left and clicking each site individually.  You can stay up-to-date with the project by marking this page and checking back here every so often.  Also, you can hear more excerpts and find more info about the project, and it's artists, at the following links:
