The Fujara double flute of Slovakia

A fujara, is a Slovak folk music instrument, a long overtone flute, usually handcarved by shepherds to pass time. The fujara tends to be taller than its player, so it is generally played standing up. See to read what Unesco has to say about this instrument. Or go to to read just about everything there is to read about it. Just whatever you do, don’t call it a didgeridoo! The two instruments may have a cursory resemblance, but are different, come from the opposite ends of the Earth, and neither has influenced the other.
