LOBI, FLUTES, Burkina Faso

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.
