Native American musical instruments, handmade by artists from various tribes. Crafted and accented with natural materials, we offer unique objects of art and craft.
We offer mother drums, two-sided drums, tom-toms, hand drums, flutes, and rattles.
DRUMS: The round form of the drum represents the universe and its steady strong beat is the pulse, the heart, the throbbing at the center of the universe. This sound stirs us and helps us to understand the mystery and power of all things.
FLUTES: Native American flutes are instruments of music, ceremony, entertainment, courtship and love. Some Navajo medicine men say a girl will find irresistible the boy who plays the flute for her. Most traditional Navajo flutes were made from sunflower stalk; today the flutes are evolving into a medium of artistic expression that uses a variety of materials. Jonah Thompson (Navajo) makes all of our flutes. The standard Native American Flute is the A Minor which we stock in pine with many different animal totems and stained in three different colors. We also carry a smaller D Minor, also in pine with many different animal totems and stained in three different colors. Jonah also makes our cedar flutes which are in F Sharp, G Minor and E Minor. As well as a double-chamber, or drone flute, which has one chamber that is a constant tone much like an organ. The other chamber is a standard flute which is available in either F Sharp or A Minor. The cedar flutes are richer in sound than the pine and are becoming the most popular flutes in our line.
