At Medicine Wind Music I’ve been playing, recording & making flutes out of bamboo for almost 30 years now.
I grow the bamboo that I use for flute-making on my land in Gainesville, Florida.
I grow a specific “long node” tropical variety that is ideal for flutes, allowing me to achieve a high degree of tuning accuracy.

I specialize in making fine tuned bamboo flutes in a wide range of scales and sizes, from 3 inches long down to 5 foot bass flutes!
As well as various Pentatonic and middle eastern varieties.

I am also a recording artist with over 20 albums to my credit.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions concerning any of my flutes & or recordings

In concert I specialize in layering & looping dozens of different flutes into an organic sound tapestry that is inspired by the ancients but also carves a new trail thru a contemporary meditative sound space.

George Tortorelli/ MedicineWind is a Master Bamboo Flute Designer and Player. He has been a Multi-Instrumentalist since the age of 12. Being raised in a musical family he had access to many instruments, and went on to perform in rock bands throughout south Florida.

Before long he became aware of the mind and body stress from the rock and roll lifestyle. He longed for simpler pastures and retreated to the forests of north Florida with a collection of rare and exotic instruments.It was there in the beauty and silence that the purest harmonies of nature came through him. He discovered and planted an abundance of bamboo on his land, and commenced expanding his growing flute collection with flutes of his own design.

His music and concerts were so loved by surrounding communities that he became known as "Medicine Wind" for the healing sound qualities of his Meditative, Peaceful music.

He started his own company called Medicine Wind Music, and commenced a successful recording career and custom flute design for fine arts festivals.

He recorded three independant records: "TranceMission", "MedicineWind" & "Rites of Passage".
As well as 15 recordings with Windham Hill Celtic Harpist Lisa Lynne.

George has appeared with such notables as:

RAM DASS, DEEPAK CHOPRA, RASA, RICHIE HAVENS, PAT METHENY, MICHAEL HEDGES, TUCK & PATTIE, WILL ACKERMAN, DAVID ARKENSTONE, LIZ STORY and many more.
