The Ashar Native Flute is the bamboo flute model, created following the essential shapes of the Native American Flute, which is a specific style of flute developed in North America, whose current characteristics were only standardized in the second half of the twentieth century. Its main characteristics are the two chambers (slow air and sound chamber) where the air passage happens through a block that directs the air to the whistle. This feature offers a soft sound and is sensitive to blowing variations, in addition to facilitating the production of sounds. The second characteristic that definitely marked the Native American flute with an unmistakable musical style, was the standardization of a minor pentatonic scale. This mysterious scale that brings us to deep emotions and nature, was already used by other very old peoples. The Native Flute has powerful vibrational characteristics that when playing it we feel in a few minutes communion with nature and the feeling of "coming home". It is a fast learning flute, which facilitates musical initiation for people who have never played an instrument, creating an opportunity to find their music, acting as a powerful ally in meditative, respiratory and therapeutic practices.
