Native American Navajo Made Cedar 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 of sunflower stalk; in present day the flutes are evolving into a medium of artistic expression that uses a variety of materials. These cedar flutes, tuned to F Sharp, E Minor, and G Minor are handcrafted by Jonah Thompson. These flutes are samples of Native American instruments and the diversity within Navajo culture. Jonah has just retooled the E Minor, F Sharp and the G Minor. The sound is amazing. It is something he has wanted to do for some time...now all of his cedars have a magnificent sound.
