About The Instruments:
The Gadulka is a traditional Bulgarian bowed string instrument. It has three (occasionally four or five) main strings with up to sixteen sympathetic resonating strings. Only the main melodic strings are touched by the player's fingers and the strings are never pressed all the way down to touch the neck.
The instrument is held vertically, with the bow held perpendicular in an under-hand hold. A possible origin of the Gadulka may be the Crete Lira (Crete Island), Calabrian Lira (Italy) or the Kemenche strings (Turkey).
The Kaval Flute is a chromatic end-blown wooden pipe, primarily associated with mountain shepherds throughout the Balkans and Anatolia. Traditionally played throughout Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, Ukraine, Moldova, Hungary, northern Greece and Turkey, this instrument comprises of three parts.
The uppermost part of the Kaval has no finger holes. There is a special ring made either of antler or of bull horn, which is fitted there and from where the sound itself is produced. The middle part has eight apertures, seven on the front part and one on the back. Musicians use only these eight holes. The third part has only four holes. The uppermost hole sets the basic tone and the remaining three are resonant.
The Balkan Bagpipe, or otherwise known as 'Gajda' is a unique instrument, typical for the Balkan region and Southeast Europe. It consists of a bag, usually made of sheep or goat hide, blow pipe, reeds and a chanter, which is the pipe on which the melody is played.
The instrument also has a Drone - a long pipe which provides a constant harmony note without finger-holes. The Drone is usually a long, three-piece tube with a note much lower than that of the chanter.
The 'Cinematic Flutes' soundtracks are suitable for any type of media production, such as films, advertisements, games and more, and they can also be implemented in any genre of music production.
Included are full 24-Bit audio files and a breakdown of each track into different stems, giving the possibility to use any of the separate elements in as many combinations as you like.
