Foehn - Winne Clement- Native Anasazi Flute
We went out to record a piece for kaval that day and since we had the set up there I also recorded this short piece I called Foehn for Anasazi flute on the side. This is my own modified version of one of the earliest Native American flutes ever discovered.
During excavations in a cave in Northeastern Arizona wooden flutes were found believed to have been created between 620 and 670 A.D by the Ancient Poeblans, otherwise known as the Anasazi people.
This original instrument, being the earliest known Native American Flute is a rim blown flute, in my opinion probably played with an oblique embouchure originally. This technique is quite challenging to learn.
I made this easier to play version with a fipple in the back and a offset hole as a thumbhole to make the flute more easy to play and hold.
This new modified version of the old original Native American Anasazi flute makes this amazing instrument more accessible to a wider group of people.
It's amazing how this pentatonic major scale is rooted so deep in our systems, everybody 'get's it'.
This makes it very natural, soothing, consoling , relaxing and easy to enter emotionally.

Master Carved Anasazi Flute
Around the year 624 AD, 2 flutes were hid in a cliff dwelling. They were discovered in 1931 by a man looking for pottery to sell to museums. The flute you are about to see and hear has been inspired by these two flutes. And is available at
Native American Style Flute, Anasazi Tuning E
The sound producing mechanism for this flute is the two-chambered fipple form (called Native American Style) developed by the North American plains tribes. It requires no embouchure in forming the air-stream, the flute design achieving that (like a recorder in many ways). Six-holed flute tuned to play the same musical scale as the Anasazi flutes, but is NOT a rim blown flute. It has a cedar block and leather tie.

The Spirit within... - Pueblo / Anasazi Flute solo
This Anasazi / Pueblo flute was born late at night in my workshop and is still a prototype.
My rich experience with various end-blown or rim -blown flutes came to full design here.
I hope you enjoy this peaceful improvisation...
A little history of this flute:
The Anasazi flute / Pueblo flute is the name of a prehistoric end-blown flute replicated today from findings at a massive cave in Prayer Rock Valley in Arizona, USA by an archaeological expedition led by Earl H. Morris in 1931. The team excavated 15 caves and the largest among them had 16 dwellings and many artifacts including several wooden flutes, which gave the site its name, the Broken Flute Cave.
The flutes found in the cave were dated between 620 and 670 AD. They were all made of Box elder, have six finger holes and are end-blown. It is similar in many respects to a Hopi flute, which has only five finger holes.
A detailed analysis using radiocarbon dating techniques was published in 2007. The analysis included one item from a burial pit in the Broken Flute Cave. The dating placed the artifact in the range 599--769 CE.
In the recent years, the Anasazi flute has been reproduced and restored to the catalog of World flutes. While difficult to play in many respects, it has a rich, warm voice that spans a little over one and a half octaves.

Ancient Anasazi Flute
This Anasazi Flute was inspired from 2 flutes found in a cave of the Pueblo Dwellers in Arizona. It is said to be from the year 624 AD. It might have very well been the best tuned flute from all the Native flutes in the US. The Anasazi flute is a blast from the past.

The Magic of the Grand Gulch Anasazi Flute - Northern Lights Flutes Bambusflöten
Die Magie der Grand Gulch Anasazi Flöte
Gegen 1890 fand man in Utah (USA), in der Grand Gulch, der großen Trockenschlucht, eine 2.700 bis 2.900 Jahre alte Anasazi Flöte. Als ich ein Foto dieser alten Flöte entdeckte, begann mein Herz ganz wild vor Aufregung zu schlagen. Es ist ein unermessliches Geschenk, dass diese alte Flöte die Jahrtausende heil überstand. Zudem wusste ich ebenfalls, dass gerade diese Flöte ein ganz besonderer Teil meines Herzens darstellt. Ich hatte die Verbindung von der ersten Sekunde an gefühlt. So begann ich dem Original zu folgen und baue seitdem unter anderem die Northern Lights Flutes Grand Gulch Anasaziflöte. Obgleich sie nur vier Tonlöcher hat, umfängt ihr Klang und ihre Tonskala mein Herz ein jedes Mal mit dem großen Zauber der Geschichte.
Die Grand Gulch Anasazi Flute ist erhältlich bei

The Grand Gulch Anasazi Flute
Round about 1890 a special flute was found in Utah (United States). It was the Grand Gulch Anasazi Flute made round about 2,700 up 2,900 years. When I discovered a photo of this old flute I felt my heart beat full of joy. It is an tremendous gift that this old flute safely survived the millennia. I also knew that a very special part of my heart lies in this flute. I felt the connection from the first second. So, I started to follow the original and since then I build among other things the Northern Lights Flutes Grand Gulch Anasazi Flute. Although it has only four tone holes, their sound and their scale embraces my heart every time with the great magic of history.

An ancient Anasazi flute was found in a cave in Arizona. Paul Berensmeier (aka Kokopauli) plays a replica, measured to specifications by Coyote Oldman, so the tones are there same. Paul took this flute to secret sites in the Grand Canyon, the first Anasazi sounds there in 1400 years. This is a visual rendition of this experience.

Journey of the Ancients. Anasazi style flute music with a desert in the Southwest background
Doberstein is a dedicated flute player and flute maker that only crafts flutes for himself and only occasional gift to someone who also has the passion of the wood flute. He picks his woods from the Chequamegon National Forest. A place of beautiful conifers and deciduous forest that he frequently hikes and enjoys.
All flutes are hand carved to make each one unique in its own way. He does not sell flutes and leaves the flute merchandising to the ones who dedicate themselves for that purpose. He also enhances his passion of flute culture by studying the literary works of Richard Payne, David Stuart, David Grant, David Roberts, and other authors of wood flutes and ancient cultures.
As a dedicated yoga/meditation practitioner he also studies the use of flute music to deepen the meditation/yoga experience. He continues to devote himself to creating music that is intended for reflection, meditation, relaxation and the spiritual soul.
All flutes used on this video are Anasazi design and tuned. The photography is taken in southern Utah and northern Arizona. The song used on this video Journey of the Ancients is on an upcoming music project that Doberstein is working on called Journeys. This project is generally comprised of the use of open rim flutes designed such as the ancient Anasazi, Hopi, and Mojave wood flutes.

The Flute That Wrote the Song: Stephen DeRuby Eastern Cedar Low B-flat EZ-Anasazi Flute
Here is the first of two improvisations I did with my newly-acquired Eastern aromatic cedar EZ-Anasazi flute, courtesy of the wonderful flute maker Stephen DeRuby. Stephen's brilliant mouthpiece design allows all of us embrochure challenged folks to get a real taste of the succulent Anasazi flute. The original is a rim-blown flute that possess a hauntingly deep and beautiful sound and that has gained quite a bit of notoriety for being very difficult to master. The DeRuby mouthpiece, however, is fashioned in whistle-style, which makes playing practically effortless. That said, it still requires some getting used to after only playing Native American flutes, as is obvious from hearing me squeak my way through these improvs. Fear not; I'll master the EZ soon enough! Until that time comes, enjoy my embryonic adventures on this ancient instrument reborn.

Think... August - Pueblo / Anasazi Flute solo
This improvisation is a tribute to Scott August.
Therefore I´ve called it Think ... August.
His style has influenced me greatly.
Inspired by him, I went to my workshop late at night, to make an Anasazi style flute in the key of F#. Fortunately, my rich experience with various end-blown flutes came to full design here. It´s the largest flute I´ve ever made so far - and I have reached my limits!
Due to its huge size, it´s very uncomfortable to play - despite thumbhole and offset
fingerholes, but definitively worth the effort :)
I hope you enjoy this improvisation...
In the recent years, the Anasazi flute / Pueblo flute has been reproduced and restored to the catalog of World flutes. While difficult to play in many respects, it has a rich and warm voice.

Anasazi Wind-On High Spirits Condor Bass Flute in D
When I was in Canyon de Chelly, I met flute recording artist Travis Terry. Besides giving me pointers on the flute and letting me play some of his flutes, he also told me about playing in the canyon. While we were talking, the wind picked up a little. Travis told me that the spirits of those who came to the canyon before us were on the wind, and that the flute captured their voices. He of course spoke of the Anasazi people along with all the others who called the canyon home. I hope that my music gives honor to the memory of their great past. Comments are welcome.
p.s. a big thank you to Travis Terry for teaching me a few techniques in the short time we had, and for his immense inspiration and encouragement to me in my flute playing. You Rock Travis!
Here is a short Anasazi flute improvisation I did the other day. I have had my flute for like 2 weeks now. It's a rim-blown flute, which makes it pretty darn hard to get a good sound out of (after hours and hours of practice, I can finally get the full range of the flute with out loosing the sound quality). My flute is a PVC version (key of A) I bought from Mark Purtill: My flute cost me about $50. I have seen a beautiful high quality wood versions on the net for about $600(!!!)
The scale is very interesting as well: A, B, C, C#, E, F#, G#, A. It's like a 1600 year old jazz scale! :-)
