Subject: Subject: [Musical Instruments] The Amerindians

P.J. Benoit describes how Amerindians use flutes at their 'wild' dance parties. These flutes are made of reeds in which they have made holes. They blow on their flutes to produce sound. Once in a while the music is accompanied by the sound of a tambourine and a sharp sound of a kind of trumpet. This trumpet is four to five feet long. At the end of the trumpet is an ox horn attached. According to Benoit, the sound of the musical instruments, the shouting and yelling blends well with the kind of dance that is performed by them. Paintings of musical instruments are shown in 'Reis Door Suriname'.[1] An Amerindian (Wayana tribe) is shown in a black and white photograph with a dance flute in 'Avonturen aan de Wilde Kust' [2]. The Amerindians play flute alone or in a group. The Wayana Indians use also a 'pans fluit', translated pandean flute, and while blowing on this particular flute they carry a turtle shell under their left arm to create additional sound effects. While P.J. Benoit writes about tambourines, the Wayana uses a drum to accompany the flute players at the festive parties where they dance and rarely touch each other. -------
