The bamboo flute is an important instrument in Indian classical music, and developed independently of the Western flute.
Two main varieties of Indian flutes are currently used. The first, the Bansuri, has six finger holes and one embouchure hole, and is used predominantly in the Hindustani music of Northern India. The second, the Venu or Pullanguzhal, has eight finger holes, and is played predominantly in the Carnatic music of Southern India. Presently, the eight-holed flute with cross-fingering technique is common among many Carnatic flutists. Prior to this, the South Indian flute had only seven finger holes, with the fingering standard developed by Sharaba Shastri, of the Palladam school, at the beginning of the 20th century.
The quality of the flute's sound depends somewhat on the specific bamboo used to make it.

This is a simple but very attractive composition. I like the contrasts of the bright flutes and the black background, also that of the red and blue strings wrapped around the yellow flutes. You arranged this very nicely.

hello, a nice graphical presentation here. Love the compact framing with a bit dark space at right, it made it more beautiful. A superb one. Tfs.

A close-up on a music instrument is not very common on TE. The tight framing makes this shot very graphic.
