“Consider the sound of the hummingbird as it flies or hovers overhead; a low pulsating flutter, as if a large night butterfly – drawn to a light – beat its powdered wings against the glass. The hummingbird’s sound is unique in nature, but – interestingly – the Chimu knew how to reproduce it. Following a tradition that had existed for more than a thousand years, Chimu potters fashioned ingenious ceramic bottles that whistle when you blow into them, and when played in concert, create a sound that is most succinctly described as the low fluttering sound of a hummingbird in flight. ” Daniel Statnekov
Peruvian Whistling Vessels
True Shamanic Instruments
For over two thousand years, different cultures in Peru
produced vessels psychoacoustically tuned. Instruments which
produce vibrations that induce an expanded state of consciousness
different from anything known today. They stopped producing
their vessels when conquistadors entered their land. They
did not share the vessel experience with the invaders. For hundreds
of years the vessels have remained silent, waiting for this point
in history to reawaken.
I am now offering sessions with small groups
call to inquire
Vessels are created by Don Wright, vessel maker.
