    Go to Q Up Arts and search for Voices of Native America - they have 2 volumes in multiple formats and this might be what you are looking for - HTH

    Q Up Arts sounds like the place to go.
    Zircon Studios - Original music for media, electronica, sound design, and synthesis.

    good point, Lee. There are plenty of performers who would play or at least advise.

    BTW, Bigga Giggas also have a flute CD for Giga/halion

    Lee is correct. Be careful. I feel guilty when I use them in the context of emulating a native sound, as if I am disturbing a great spiritual being...or destroying a culture. Drums have spirits...so be warned.

    I agree with you guys. Im really looking for some music/sounds to supplement some of the recordings i already have. The recordings I have been given are not very good and i either need to ditch them or supplement them. For this episode the budget is low however next episode I plan on recording some new talent.
    As i am not too familiar with this style of music I'm trying to get up to speed on the instruments and vibe. Any help with the types and names of the instruments would help alot. The types of drums flutes etc. thanks.

    I just received a call from the National Northern Canadian Congress of Native American Social Club. They said, they would put a spiritual curse on anyone who uses these sample libraries out of the context of the rituals that they were intended...so be careful...especially with your drum and flute choices
