The Aroha was inspired by the traditional Maori flutes that were played before the arrival of Europeans in New Zealand. Aroha is the Maori word for love and you could certainly play this flute for romantic purposes! The design of the Aroha is based on my North American style flute, and it uses the G Pentatonic minor scale. By the ingenious addition of an extra note the Aroha will also play the C Pentatonic minor scale. Furthermore several tritonic and tetratonic scales are available some of which include an evocative sounding semitone. Because of the two-chamber design and unique fingering the Aroha can be used for many traditional musical styles, such as American Indian, Maori, Andean, Inuit, African, Indian and Russian. The Aroha flute is made from PVC. It features a Takahe totem in recycled native Tawa timber, a small bell/horn, decorative tassels in traditional Maori colours and a comfortable mouthpiece, with a stylized Maori tatoo (moko).
