Trees to Flutes cubit
The Legend of the Flute as told by the Lakota Sioux|
By Cliff Smith on January 5, 2011
Well, you know our flutes, you've heard their sounds and seen how beautifully they are made. That flute of ours, the siyotanka, is for only one kind of music, love music. In the old days the men would sit by themselves, maybe lean hidden, unseen, against a tree in the dark of night. They would make up their own special tunes, their courting songs.
|Welcome to the Trees to Flutes Cubit. I would like to introduce you to the Native American flute, noted for it's beautiful haunting sound and ease of playing.|
Native American's had no written music, the music simply came from the heart. The flute was originally created by young warriors as a courting instrument. It has since evolved and is played by many professional musicians, and those who just like creating their own songs. There is no such thing as a wrong song.
There is some transcribed music and fingering charts for some of the old hymns and Native American songs readily available over the internet. You can find these resources using this link. http://oregonflutestore.com/
