Hevreh Ensemble and Native American Flute Maker Daniel Bigay

Hevreh is a Hebrew word meaning “circle of friends.” Hevreh’s essence is the thread of intention and imagination that connects a Cherokee flute to a shofar. Hevreh’s aesthetic is the double-image evoked by the intertwining of distinct musical languages, delivered with the respect of exacting classical technique, the playful joy of jazz improvisation, and the intense warmth, humor, and empathy that only a close-knit chamber ensemble can offer.

Hevreh is excited to welcome master artist, musician, and Native American flute maker Daniel Bigay to its circle of friends. Bigay belongs to the Echota Cherokee Tribe of Alabama and is of Cherokee, Choctaw, Taino, and Scot/Irish descent.

In commemoration of Indigenous Peoples Month, this collaboration includes commentary on the loss of indigenous language in Native American culture, demonstrations of the beautiful flutes that Bigay creates, opportunities to try playing a Native American flute, and a performance that includes solo works for Native American flute and works played together with the Hevreh Ensemble.
