Japanese Mountain Cherry Branch Flute
with Hirajoshi tuning in the key of A

 Click on video to hear sound sample:


The beautiful cherry bark has been left on this Japanese Mountain Cherry flute,  Prunus serrulata var. spontanea, measuring 17 1/2" in length, with four tuning holes.  This solid bore branch flute has been tuned to the traditional Japanese Hirajoshi scale in the key of A, with five finger holes.  The bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe and a drain hole has been designed into the air chamber to help prevent wet-out.  Deer leather lacing, with malachite and wooden beads secures the bird to her nest.  Crushed malachite has been inlaid into the bird of the flute, as well as into one of the knots.  The branch for this flute came from the mountains of Japan, shipped to me from a friend about 7 years ago.  Of interest,  Kabazaiku is the 200 year old art form in Japan of making woodworks from the bark of Mountain Cherry trees.
