Eastern flutes

I am mesmerized by wind instruments, especially the different variants of flute. Last year I bought an Irish tin whistle as a supplement to the piano. It’s easy to play and doesn’t sound horrible in the hands of an amateur player.

However, judging from the richness in voice alone, the eastern flutes are hard to compete with. There’s always a little mysticism attached to a rugged piece of bamboo.
