The Fujara double flute of Slovakia

by AdamStanislav - uploaded on May 1, 2016, 11:38 pm

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 http://www.unesco.org/culture/intangible-heritage/37eur_uk.htm to read what Unesco has to say about this instrument. Or go to http://www.fujara.sk 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.
