The River Cane Flute , is a tribute to the tradition of Native American flutes created with river cane bamboo ( Arundinaria gigantean ). This traditional Native American style flute was easily found among the native peoples of the southeastern United States. It is a flute with a narrow diameter and excellent sound, it has 5 holes maintaining the pentatonic scale and natural mouthpiece of the bamboo itself. We produce it with a more resistant bamboo maintaining the overall shape. River Cane Flute is apparently simple, but its sound has a special glow that touches and elevates us.
The Flauta Nativa Ashar is the bamboo flute model, created following the essential formats 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 features are the two chambers (air slow motion and sound chamber) where the air passage happens through a block that directs the air to the whistle. This characteristic offers a smooth and sensitive sound to breath variations, in addition to facilitating the production of sounds. The second feature that definitely marked the Native American flute with an unmistakable musical style was the standardization of the minor pentatonic scale. This mysterious scale, which takes us back to deep emotions and nature, was already used by other very ancient 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 for them to find their music, acting as a powerful ally in meditative, breathing and therapeutic practices.
