Fujarka - Alchemy of the worlds

next


The Fujara is a typical musical instrument from Slovakia. It is so unique that was proclaimed in the UNESCO list of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2005. I was in Bratislava for a conference and I obviously looked for a fujara, but it turned out to be really really expensive (more than 500 !). So I decided to buy the smaller version, called fujarka or 'Koncovka'.
