This study investigates the siku of Argentina, Peru, Bolivia and Venezuela; and the shakuhachi of Japan and their effect on Western classical flute repertoire. By exploring the histories, construction of the flutes, and the role each flute has in its society, a better understanding of these flutes and the cultural aesthetic in which they work will be achieved thus creating a higher level of authenticity when performing these pieces. The pieces being surveyed are Flute 3.2.4. by Adriana Verdie and Nesting of Cranes by Wil Offermans. Notes on technique of what the author found useful when playing these pieces are found at the end of each chapter.
