The Hummingbird (Colibri) symbolizes the pleasure of life and the lightness of being. Those who have the hummingbird as a totem are invited to enjoy the sweetness of life, eliminating negativity wherever it may be and expressing love fully in their daily activities. This fascinating bird is capable of the most incredible feats despite its small size, such as traveling huge distances or being able to fly backwards. By affinity with the hummingbird, those who have this bird as a totem can be encouraged to develop their adaptability and flexibility while maintaining a playful and optimistic outlook. In some native cultures the hummingbird is also associated with immortality with the warrior's soul and as a messenger of the Spirit.

tunings

The Native Flute Beija-Flor is part of our exclusive collection Flauta Nativa Ashar style NAF (Native American Flute) is a flute with 5 or 6 holes of musical notes that reproduce the minor pentatonic scale. The flute has a whistle and the air is directed to the whistle by an animal-shaped block that represents the spirit of the flute.

We produce the Nativa Beija-Flor flute in 8 tunings that cover the medium / high range. With Alto C (DO5) being the smallest and highest pitched flute, A (LA4) being the standard tuning, then in order from shortest length and high pitch to highest length and mid/low tones: G (SOL4), F# (FA# 4), F (FA4), E (MI4), D (RE4) and C (DO4) being the largest flute in length and tonality.

For a first contact with the instrument we recommend tuning C Alto (C5), A (LA4) or G (SOL4). Because they have a smaller length and distance between the holes, which facilitates the practice of fingering.  

BAMBOO

The bamboo selected for these flutes is of high acoustic quality, with thick thickness. The bamboos are dried in the shade for at least 6 months, treated and sealed to withstand the weather and variations in humidity, temperature and antifungal protection.  

NOZZLE

The mouthpiece of the Flute NAF Beija-Flor is made of wood and glued to the bamboo body. 

FINISHES

The NAF Beija-Flor Series is magnetized with the energy of hummingbirds through painting with acrylic paint. After painting we applied 3 layers of acrylic varnish and a layer of natural Indian shellac varnish on top. Each flute is hand-painted and has colors inspired by different breeds of hummingbirds.
