This section of pages make up the Flutopedia Song Book. Most of these songs are scored using Nakai Tablature with Finger diagrams.

The songs of a people furnish an entranceto their inner life, which, if we would understandthem, we cannot neglect. This isespeciaI1y true of a barbarous people, whoseoutward life is rough and forbidding. It isnot enough for us·to note their uncouth dressand rude ways. Such curiosity-shop knowledgeis neither complete nor just, because itis not sympathetic; being content with observing the life of habit, it does not reachthe real life, the life of feeling.
Taking the truer method, we find the Dakotas to be menand women of like passions with ourselves.And they in like manner find in music andsong their greatest means of emotional expression;either in the stirring songs of thechase or of war, or the p1aintive melodiesof love, or the weird chants of their sacred mysteries.
— Stephen Return Riggs [Riggs 1869]
Aside from its scientific value, this music possesses a charm of spontaneity that cannot fail to please those who would come near to nature and enjoy the expression of emotion untrammelled by the intellectual control of schools. These songs are like the wild flowers that have not yet come under the transforming hand of the gardener.
— Alice C. Fletcher [Fletcher 1900]

There are many books of transcribed music, as well as web sites that provide sheet music – far more music than is in the Flutopedia Song Book:

PDF version of
Christmas Songs and Duets
by Ami Sarasvati

  • Robert and Julia Gatliff's FluteTree.com web site.
  • The Louisiana Native American Flute Circle web site, maintained by Paula and Byron Ellis.
  • Traditional Native American Indian Song Collection web site.
  • Christmas Songs and Duets ([Sarasvati 2015]) – available in PDF under a Creative Commons license.
  • The hardcopy songbooks listed in the Songbook References page on this site.

It's not my goal to replace these resources or duplicate their efforts. My direction is to connect the songs with their history and stories.

So, browse through these songs (you can use the buttons on the top-right to go through the songs alphabetically) and check out some of the stories and songs. (Of course, some are still under development.)

Alternately, here are the songs loosely grouped by rough categories:

Historical and Archaeological

These songs have a history that pre-dates the written history of Western andNorth American indigenous cultures.They are included in Flutopedia because I have found them to be interesting from the perspectiveof the historical development of human musicality.

Traditional Native American Songs

These melodies are directly from or (as best I know based on documented evidence) are stronglyrooted in traditional Native American melodies. These songs include some songs from the Indianistmovement that have traditional roots.

  • Wendeyaho (Tinhanama)

The Indianist Movement

I consider these songs to be part of the Indianist Movement. Some have roots in traditional NativeAmerican melodies and were harmonized or heavily modified by the arranger, and some areoriginal, non-traditional melodies developed by the composer.

In this category, you can also check out the transcriptions and comopositions by Thurlow Lieurance that are available in PDF format ([Lieurance 1913a]).

Original Compositions

  • Blue Feathers — Christopher Alan Mink

Americana

These songs have roots in traditional American folk, country, or rhythm and blues.

Cultural Folk Songs

These songs are folk melodies from world cultures:

  • Pokarekare Ana (Maori)

Popular Music

These songs were composed (relatively) recently:

Hymns, Carols, and Devotional Chants


In the digital age, people create films, documentaries, games and many different creative projects that often require background music. You can either hire a freelance music composer and create unique music, or you can purchase so called royalty free music (also known as stock music) – pay once for a license and use the music for your project.

Good Native American Flute music for backgrounds is not as popular as other genres of music, nevertheless it can be found on-line. Today I recommend the best pieces of royalty free music that include Native American Flute. Some of these pieces can be found on Pond5, a great royalty free music and sounds marketplace. Other music can be found on Jamendo. I offer licenses for my own music there, too.

Some pieces below are a flute solo, other are more complex compositions with chants and other instruments. You can listen to their watermarked versions with the player embeded below, or click “link” to go to AudioJungle and purchase.

If you haven’t seen AudioJungle before, it works like this – you register an account, deposit money, and purchase the license for an item. Then, you can download the files without watermark and use them in your project in accordance with the license you bought.

Stock music (and royalty free music) is all about licenses. A composer and producer creates music and offer proper licenses. You pay for the license, and you can use the musical piece for your own project, whether it’s commercial or non-commercial. Licenses usually state some limits. Basic licenses allow you to use the song in one project, for example, while extended licenses, which are more expensive, allow you to use the music in Hollywood blockbuster movie.

Jamendo Music and Licenses

Jamendo is a website for independent artists. Every piece of music there is available for free – but if you wish to use the music in a commercial project, you need to purchase an affordable license in most cases.

All my own Native American Flute music is offered in their royalty free program. Just click the links below to go to my albums, and then you will see a button “Get an official license” on the right side (desktop, laptop) or at the bottom (mobile) of the page:

On Jamendo, another artist – SaReGaMa – created a great Native American Flute piece:

  • Medicine of Kokopelli – it’s available with and without background sounds.

On Jamendo, once you go to individual song, you will find a small link that allow you to purchase commercial license. The artist receives his author share for each sold license, so it’s a great way to support independent artists.

Pond5

Pond5 is another website with many royalty free Native American flute music. Licenses are affordable :). Here are two of my own tracks there:

And here are some additional tracks: flute collection.
