This nicely designed and illustrated book deals with the playing and care of one of the most evocative and expressive instruments in the world- the Native American flute. This volume will delight the novice or advanced player alike with both fundamental instruction and a significant number of transcriptions from R. Carlos Nakai's various recordings. This unique book includes a fingering chart, information in performance technique, style, rhythm conventions, ornaments, and history - plus an analysis of Mr. Nakai's role in contemporary Native American culture. All exercises, solos, and duets (with Boehm flute and E flat alto sax) are written in standard notation. A comprehensive discography and probing essay on "The Question of Authenticity" close this outstanding book.

  • March 26, 2013 The heartful flute music of Carlos Nakai

    Carlos Nakai is considered by many of my colleagues, including me, to be one of the most soulful players of the Native American Flute. For those of you who play in climates where the heat and humidity can impact your flutes, I encourage you to purchase a durable, affordable, easily...

    transported PVC flutes made by Ken Light, owner of Amorin Olorin Flutes. Carlos Nakai's workshops may be sourced at available at aoflutes.com. Carlos Nakai's Native American flute music is hauntingly beautiful when played using the PCV flutes in a sweat lodge.
