Native American Navajo Made Cedar Drone Flutes--A Minor
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 earlier times; today the flutes are evolving into a medium of artistic expression that use a variety of materials. These cedar drone flutes are tuned to A Minor and are handcrafted by Jonah Thompson. This flute is a sample of Native American instruments and the diversity within Navajo culture.
