The packaging was esquisite. The way I opened it , I can use it as a safe case to carry both instruments if I want to and it looks really COOL! The instruments are very sweet sounding and easy to play, even for a neophyte. I want Mr. Benito Tito to know he has made me very happy!!! A person should be able to send such a message to the artist directly I think! Thank You Mr. TITO and Novica...Very pleasent experience all around.!

Popular Eco Friendly Bamboo Gifts
Peruvian Bamboo Quena Flute, "Night Owl"$52.99
Handcrafted of smooth bamboo, the flute is a legacy of the Inca. Today it is an indispensable instrument in traditional Peruvian songs. Benito Tito perforates holes of different widths to ensure a professional sound. An owl adorns the flute and its fabric case emulates pre-Hispanic textiles.
Hand Crafted Bamboo Wind Instrument Zampona Panpipes (Pair), "Inca Serenade"$42.99
The sweet tunes of the panpipe serenade the Andes with nostalgic songs. "The use of the zampoña has become widespread across the world and it is played at different functions," explains Benito Tito. "In Peru we play the zampoña during special ceremonies and traditional rites." Tito crafts this zampoña by hand with 13 bamboo reeds of the same diameter but different length. The pipes are tied together with a woven ribbon.
Tito includes a smaller zampoña as a gift. The set includes woven cases for storing.
Sun Motif Bamboo Wind Chimes in Black from Bali, "Breezy Sound"$29.99
Let the breeze bring music to your garden with this set of wind chimes from Bali. Trisna Dewi crafts these chimes from bamboo, using three black cylinders of descending size that are marked with sunny and geometric designs. Below these cylinders, hand-tuned aluminum chimes dangle from natural agel grass cord.
Bamboo flute, "White Dragon Song III"$157.99
Nyoman Lentong pays tribute to the Chinese white snake legend with this beautifully crafted flute. Bai SuZhen was a snake who became a beautiful woman. Unaware that she was really a snake, a young scholar fell deeply in love with her. But a monk who knew the truth banished Bai SuZhen to the bottom of a deep well and saved the scholar's soul, though it is said his heart was broken.
Flutes of this type are used in the Balinese gamelan percussion orchestra, whose importance goes well beyond the pleasure of music and into the realm of ritual ceremony. Lentong shapes the bamboo by hand, using burnt coconut ash to create the motifs. He signs it as "Pan Nasib," as he is known in his village.
Because each flute is individually handcrafted, size may vary up to +/- 1.5 cms.
