What are now known in Japan as ‘Hero’ flutes began as flutes for Iwami Kagura: the ancient music and dancing of Japan’s native Shinto religion.
The Kagura flute craftsman has taken a stick of bamboo and taken it 'the extra mile'. Not only delicately shaped, but beautifully finished.
Each flute comes with a FREE hour long instructional DVD. The DVD is in Japanese, but it SHOWS how to use the flute, and shows the flute being played along with Kagura music and dance.
