Flutes are simple and powerful instruments, they are directly related to the vital movement of breathing, the exchange of energy through the breath that carries life, sound and allows expressing the unspeakable. Music, in particular melody, is nothing less than a range of vibrations interacting and relating, with the flute being one of the most suitable musical instruments for initiation into the universe of melodic relationships and combinations.
Breathing is the manifestation of life, the only thing we need to do in the first instance to stay alive is to breathe, and our respiratory system is both involuntary and voluntary, it is possible to exert some control over it, so the act of blowing and producing sound is very magical because it is a creative act, it is movement; life!
The native flute has elements that favor musical awakening, that is, our innate ability to make music, and helps to deconstruct the idea that only people with natural talent for music can make it.
In principle, every flute created by original peoples is considered a native flute, in the Americas, we have many native flutes, Brazil is rich in this sense, because many native peoples have their flutes. However, here we use the term “Native Flute” or Native American Style Flute, as a reference to 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 characteristic that differentiates it from other native Amerindian flutes is the fact that it has two chambers (slow chamber and sound chamber) whose air passage from one to the other happens through a block on a table creating a tunnel for the bezel (whistle/chimney). This characteristic offers a smooth and sensitive sound to breath variations, in addition to facilitating the production of sounds.
What 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 minor pentatonic scale was incorporated into the native flute with a combination of elements that reason can hardly explain, what we do know is that this marriage combined in such a way that today, the native flute has become a symbol of ancestral redemption, of connection with nature and the path “back home”. What we can say is that words will not be enough to explain what you will feel when you play your native flute. I felt magic and beauty, vibrate peace and love in the universe; our mission is to share this magic with you.
The main advantage of the native flute is that it is an instrument that can be mastered quickly, which facilitates musical initiation for people who have never played an instrument, creating the possibility of rescuing their musicality, acting as a powerful ally in meditative, breathing and therapeutic practices. In a few minutes playing the flute you will realize its magical effects.
Our flutes are handmade creations crafted one by one with a lot of love. We take care of the bamboos from harvesting, preparation and drying for months. It is a slow and careful process. Each flute that is born has its unique personality. The photos of the flutes are references for you to choose and order your new flute. Due to the wide variety of models and customization possibilities, we require a lead time for delivery:
To create a flute, there is an alchemical consciousness working in the invisible through 4 elements, the craftsman is an interpreter of the process, and when he is integrated into the natural flow of the raw material and participates in each stage of gestation, he develops the subtle art of knowing what each bamboo will be like a flute. The craftsman's intent is shaped by the form and nature of the material. The latent flute awaits the presence of the Being, to manifest what it is from the beginning!
If you are looking for an instrument of power and vibrational healing, this is our mission, and time is a value in favor, necessary for the manifestation of an instrument with Soul.

The choice of alignment of the last hole will depend on the size of the flute and which hand is used below to close the last three holes. The vast majority of people play with the right hand below, in this case, for large flutes, we recommend that the last hole be aligned to the Right, as a way of facilitating the typing of this last note on the flute without causing discomfort to the ring finger of the right hand, this way it is easier to close the holes. For quena , there is no need for the last hole to be on the right, in this case it can be the Standard alignment, in the center, because as the flute has a small size there will be no difficulties in plugging the flute holes. Remembering that to know the approximate length of each flute according to the tuning, just consult our Size Chart. In the case of medium sized flutes, for people with small arms, hands or fingers, we recommend ordering the last hole on the right, this way it is guaranteed that there will be no difficulties in fingering the flute.
The choice of wood mouthpiece or natural bamboo mouthpiece does not influence the sound quality because the sound quality is related to the whistle of the flute and the block or totem. The air chamber, which is where we blow, serves only to drive the air under the block or totem and direct that air to the whistle. The wooden mouthpiece has the advantage of giving a different finish, more aesthetic and also more ergonomic because you just need to lightly touch the mouthpiece, without having to open your mouth, just enough to cover the quena area of the mouthpiece and blow. The bamboo flute with the natural open mouthpiece does not have the aesthetics of the wooden mouthpiece, but the sound quality is the same. The advantage of an open mouthpiece is that you can dry it off easily when you've just played, and in the long run this makes a difference. This is the great advantage compared to the wooden nozzle because with the wooden nozzle, the entrance is quena and it is very difficult to introduce any artifact to clean it. With the open mouth of the bamboo it is possible to carry out this maintenance by drying with a flannel and also removing dust with a brush. So basically that's the difference between the wooden mouthpiece and the natural bamboo mouthpiece, it doesn't influence the sound quality. While the wooden mouthpiece has an aesthetic and ergonomic quality, the natural bamboo mouthpiece has an instrument-keeping quality.
