What is a Hijaz Flute?


Hijaz flutes often referred to as middle eastern flutes have a tuning that is familiar in Arabic and Hebrew music. They feature a six note scale where the highest note is overblown. They are more complicated to play than a Native American style flute. The lowest hole is set low enough on the flute that many players need to use a pinky finger to cover it. Once you learn to play your Hijaz flute, you will be rewarded with its soothing and harmonic voice.

All of our Hijaz flutes feature decorative low profile blocks made from a colorful assortment of woods and have three decorative rings carved into the mouth and foot end of the flute.
