In Burkina Faso, flutes from the Mossi, Lobi and Bwa people are played to accompany balafons and drums during ceremonies and mask perfomances. They can be played singly or in groups. A flute plays a set of notes with a complex but very repetitive tune.

Some flutes were used for different purposes by hunters.
