The Story: This is a fundraiser to help Jader and Yoseldy build their home. They are leaders in their church and Jader has collected building materials for 10 years and finally was able to buy a plot. They have 2 young kids and Yoseldy has sewn my flute bags. This year she developed a 10 pound tumor along with extreme anemia. I thank God we were able to help with the operation, that went well. They are presently living under a partial plastic roof. The Kids of Cascabel (rescued from the garbage dump) and some of the staff of our children's home have agreed to build them their home and asked me to help raise funds to feed them while they worked. I agreed and here we go! The funds collected from this sale will feed the workers for 2 weeks. I have put together 4 Flute Sets for this.
This is a collection of 14 items. From Left to right.
1) The Inspired Kiowa Love Flute: Easy to play, dark and carved. Had some hairline cracks that were glued and bound.
2) Oriental Flute: Natural and bound. Pentatonic scale. 1 1/2 octaves. Free tutorial on Oriental page in Flute section and covered in enclosed DVD.
3) Large Arabian Flute: Dark and bound. Inspired by the Egyptian Ney seen on pyramid walls 5,000 years ago. A Tremendous exotic scale that is very creative and dramatic. One of my favorite flutes.
