Introduction
Picture of Boy Playing a Tinwhistle

.

Perhaps one of man's earliest cultural inventions were crude musical instruments. It is not hard to imagine primitive humans banging two sticks (or animal bones) together in a rhythmic pattern, shaking a dried gourd, or blowing a note on sea shell. Since then, man has evolved -- and so has his musical instruments!

Throughout our history, musical instruments have been a part of our spiritual rituals, social ceremonies, festive events, and personal entertainment. Folk instruments have played an important part in not only developing more sophisticated cultures, but also in defining who and what we are -- as either a society or as an individual. Remembering our past through traditional folk instruments is yet another way to experience our cultural histories and learn about customs that were once important to us.

Bamboo Flute

.

Product Description: Our Bamboo Flute (5003) is an ancient wind instrument played like a recorder. No two bamboo flutes are alike because each piece of bamboo is unique. Therefore, they are not bound to any certain key and are mostly a solo instrument unless played with a percussion instrument. Bamboo flutes produce a nice, mellow and very pleasing tune, which can soothe the body and soul -- for both yourself and others. These bamboo flutes are imported from India and have six finger holes. The package comes with a fingering chart and a brief history.

Little Bamboo Flute

Bamboo flutes produce a nice, mello and very pleasing tune, which can soothe the body and soul -- for both yourself and others. These imported bamboo flutes are approximately 9 inches in length and have six finger holes. The package comes with a fingering chart and a brief history.
