Xiao & Side Flute Workshop

Tales from the Land of

This peculiar tribe of weird looking ufo people had a strange habit.

They liked to keep their eyes closed and feel, inhale deep while being lost in the realms of the land of the here and now.

A place that no language had ever touched.

In these realms the story goes, there is this tribe that lives and thrives with Sound as their guide…

Last year we offered a 5/hour workshop on the art of creating the Japanese Shakuhachi flute.
An experience that turned out to be a great inspiration to all of us.
There, a good number of people embarked on a journey of self discovery through the element of Wood.
By the end of the workshop, all participants had a piece of reed ready to be blown as they had just started learning techniques on how to regulate their breath and create sound!

This year we plan to introduce a new workshop centered around the art of creating a Xiao as well as a Side Flute. This is a Chinese vertical end-blown flute that is a close relative to shakuhachi and the sounds produced are equally soothing.

We will also explore the art of creating the traditional side flute that is a a close relative to the famous bansuri flute.

Below you can browse through some photos from last year’s workshop.

More details to be announced soon…
