Sacred flute brothers Nigel Shaw (Dartmoor), Guillermo Martinez (USA) and Hiroki Okano (Japan) will be leading a very special workshop and performing a rare concert at Embercombe, on the edge of Dartmoor.

Afternoon workshop – 1pm to 5pm – Sacred Ancient Instruments – £50
Join Guillermo, Hiroki and Nigel for a journey through sacred sound, using three ancient instruments: the rattle, the drum and the flute. We will explore how human cultures around the world create ceremony and song using these beautiful tools, and look at their profound differences and deep similarities. We will share Shinto prayer, Aztec dance and Celtic melody – everyone will have a chance to meet and play a diverse range of extraordinary musical instruments. We will also take these sacred sounds to the wonderful stone circle at Embercombe for a closing ceremony together.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own personal musical instruments to this workshop.
Free hot and cold drinks will be provided
, organic cake available, please bring your own snacks and pre-concert picnic.

Evening concert – 7pm to 10pm – Bamboo Cedar Oak – £20
A gentle and powerful performance by these three master flute players. A unity of spirit and true sense of brotherhood is evoked as they move between gentle flute pieces, traditional Buddhist and native Mexican prayers and powerful drumming chants. This music is enriched by the diversity of ancient sounds from their many traditional instruments and the understanding that in essence we all sing the same songs. Bamboo Cedar Oak will be joined by some special guests during the evening.
Organic teas, wine and cake will be available to purchase before the concert and during the interval.
If you are also attending the workshop, you are welcome to bring a pre-concert picnic.

For those wishing to come to both the workshop and the concert we are offering a reduced ticket.
