Authentic Snake Charmer Wooden Been from Rehabilitated Charmers

BAJAAO brings you the great Indian Snake Charmer Pipe or Flute, which is traditionally known as a Been in India. This is an ancient instrument, and dates back to 3000BC. The snake been has two bamboo bagpipe reeds that you can adjust for tuning, on dual pipes that vibrate inside the gourd mouthpiece. This been is handmade and there is fantastic attention to detail.  The snake charmer pipe/flute is great as a show piece or for the collector.  If you enjoy wind instruments, this is a must-play. The level of difficulty is the same as with a regular flute. The gourd and main shaft is made from wood.  The reeds make it really loud when played, unlike a standard pipe.

This exotic instrument has long been used by snake charmers in India to make snakes "dance" to its tune.

Today, in light of the stricter laws protecting snakes, snake charmers in India are being provided an alternate source of income by helping them build and sell musical instruments.

BAJAAO has tied up with Wildlife SOS, India's premier and most hard-working wildlife protection organization, to bring you musical instruments built by rehabilitated snake charmers, among other things.

All proceeds from the sale of these instruments will be donated to Wildlife SOS to help them alleviate the plight of snakes in India without affecting the livelihood of snake charmers. Buy the snake been today!
