Souffle : La Base De Toutes Les Traditions Des Musiques Du Monde

If vocal music was the first man-made music and percussion the second, wind instruments would undoubtedly be the third (and the first melody making instrument). The idea that a dead bone or cut plant had a voice of its own was not simply considered interesting it was magic – used to aid man with his communication with the world of spirits, to cure illness, protect crops etc.
Originally primitive one-note instruments would be blown in sequence by a collection of primitive beings to form a primitive melody. Amazingly around this time the use of harmonics was also used to extend melodic possibilities (blowing harder to get a different note – a harmonic of the basic note).
thanks for the music 123

Absolutely wonderful post Miguel!

I will let it blow in my ears tomorrow when I can play from my speakers. The winds here are very slow of the inhale, exhale nature, and as it is rather late I don't want to disturb them...
