Every project is different, in regards to the concept, which shapes the music. Martin tries hard to not use the "same instruments" and musical format.

2) CD's:temporarily not availabl

3) MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS: if it is not available, simply place an order and Martin will make it for you. All of Martin's instruments are based on the scholarly research he h done since 1975. He uses only authentic ancestral materials, designs and paints; and these instruments come to you directly and are signed by the artist!!!
To make your instrument, Martin uses as many of the ancient hands tools that were used to cut, clean, engrave, decorate, etc. back in ancient times. He even "makes" the Natural Pigment Paints that he paints your instruments with!!!

EK BALAM is Mayan for Black Jaguar. It was the Black Jaguar who inspired this music! The concept of EK BALAM is made up of "9 Dark & Mysterious Soundscapes" in other words, NO melodies or rhythms! The object was, because these works were composed for a "sound festival" called SOUNDWALK 2016. I thought just how many sounds can I get from these

EK BALAM is Mayan for Black Jaguar. It was the Black Jaguar who inspired this music! The concept of EK BALAM is made up of "9 Dark & Mysterious Soundscapes" in other words, NO melodies or rhythms! The object was, because these works were composed for a "sound festival" called SOUNDWALK 2016. I thought just how many sounds can I get from these Aztec and Mayan wind instruments and a sound processing device. SO, this is a meeting of Acoustic and Electronic. Again, the mood of this recording is heavy and deep, great for meditation or heavy introspection!!! SO, the best title for the mood is Black Jaguar. On my recordings I like to release something different from the rest, plus it shows that our instruments are capable of many styles and moods! Sorry CDs are temporarily unavailable.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND: if you live in the Los Angeles area: CURBSIDE PICKUP

These flutes are hand made by me, me, me, Martin Espino, I've been making instruments from Bamboo and Gourd since 1990. I have made over 70,000 instruments since that time, either or sale, many at school residencies and some private sales, but now here are the big ones I make for myself and now you can have one!!! Generally, they are tuned either D above middle C or Eb, they are pentatonic and produce at least 5, sometimes 7 notes, depending on how they want to act. Pentatonic, for those who don't know is the sound you get when you play on the black keys, or the sound of Native American Flutes. The burned etching on the flute is the sacred figure of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent. They measure about 2 1/2 feet long, and have a fat mellow sound, they do not jump into the next octave, so again, 5 maybe 7 notes, enough to create beautiful sacred sounds of your own! NOTE: I do not always have these in stock as they sell out fast!!! Please allow 2 weeks for delivery, that's if I have to make one for you, otherwise I ship out the same week.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Contact me for international shipping BEFORE ordering!

These flutes are about 8-10 inches long, this is the same flute I make for my Workshops and Residencies with 3rd graders to adults. The flutes have a mellow, not high pitched tone. They produce 5 and sometimes 7 tones. The note they are tuned to varies, because I don't make them to play with guitars and pianos, if you want digital tuning then I have to raise the price by $5.00 These flutes are basically made to play solo or with intimate, mellow percussion as in most indigenous music of the Americas! They are tuned to the pentatonic scale (the formation of the sounds of the black keys on the piano).

This comes with links to my VIDEOS on directions how to clean, sanitize, decorate and learn to play and compose!

If you want to learn how to decorate it, contact prior to ordering and tell you what you can do!

This is an instrument that was used in ancient Mexico and other countries.

I hand pick your gourd, them cut it, lean it and finally seal it in the traditional way! So, this instrument quite a "Special Order". I also NO LONGER Paint as seen below...traditionally, they are not painted! VAKUVAHE are both ceremonial and Performance instruments. The sound of these is more typical what you hear when you hear the Deer Dances in Mexico. So these are very, very folkloric something they sound great just very much like what you hear if you ever hear a recording of a Deer Dance or Danza del Venado. Well worth the wait, this instrument has a deep resonant tone and includes one (1) Hiponia (corn husked covered) stick. FYI: Shipping is expensive!!!
