Goin' For The Record

Straw Dawgz are inexpensive, bamboo flutes that will be distributed as a gift to provide young, local residents with an enjoyable activity.

Included with each will be directions for how to play a few simple compositions, both hard copy and online.

The name Straw Dawgz derives from a Chinese tradition of using a straw dog in celebrations and disposing of them when the ceremony is completed.

Bamboo is a grass. Straw is dried grass. “Straw Dawgz” is our name for the bamboo flutes.

We are currently working out the details for challenging the world record for most simultaneous instruments playing a tune (The current record is over 8,000 in Saint Petersburg, Russia last September.)
