Kalyuka (Russian Overtone Flute)

Traditional Overtone Flute of the Russian fields.  Originally made from hollow stem field plants at harvest time these simple end blown black bamboo flutes have no finger holes only a fipple blowing edge.  Primarily used to set a musical rhythm, tones are played by altering the amount of blowing pressure to move through the natural harmonic series,  Alternate notes and slurring effects can be found by holding a finger or hand near the far end of the flute.  Mesmerizing music from Eastern Europe.

Crafted in Maine.
