Tobacco Magic Flute in Am

Sweetly and resonantly tuned to an Am (A=440) pentatonic scale, modes 1&4, playing three upper register notes, this Tobacco ( 
Nicotiana glauca ) Magic Flute, was bored out unsplit, leaving the natural strength, beauty and integrity of the branch intact. 

Danburite crystal points (A grade) are set in each of the branch's nodes, like the buds of a living tree, allowing for the healing properties of Danburite to join in harmonious synergy with the prayerful spirit of Tobacco.  And whenever this flute's air column vibrates in the expression of its sound, it also vibrates the crystals, creating through the piezoelectric effect a very subtle electricity that amplifies the healing intent of the player.  

This very special branch flute measures 20" in length, with four tuning/direction holes.  Elk lacing, with Danburite and wood beads, secures the bird to her nest.  To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe.  A drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber.  The flute has been well sealed, inside and out, so that neither of the alkaloids in Nicotiana glauca (nicotine and anabasine) come into contact with the player.   

Tree Tobacco is a species of wild tobacco native to South America that can grow to the size of a small tree.  It has naturalized to other parts of the world, including here in Southern California where the Cahuilla Indians used its leaves "interchangeably with other tobacco species in hunting rituals and as a poultice to treat swellings, bruises, cuts, wounds, boils, sores, inflamed throat, and swollen glands." (source)  Various types of tobacco have been used traditionally in native cultures throughout the Americas as offerings to the spirits, for planting, for gathering food, for healings and for the Native American Pipe Ceremony. 

The Tree Tobacco used for this flute was gathered with respect and deep gratitude for her existence, from an area slated for development, shortly before the bulldozers would have plowed her under.  Her life continues now as a spirit-filled flute of natural magic, especially suited for prayerful, healing intentions.
