Zurna – (literally “festive flute”) is a woodwind musical instrument with a double reed. It is a wooden tube with a neck and a few (typically 8-9) holes (one of which is located on the side opposite the others). During archaeological excavations, four zurna examples made from deer antlers were found in a grave of the third millennium BC in the territory of Mingachevir.
A musician who plays the zurna is called zurnachi. Instrument belongs to a group of woodwind instruments. As a solo musical instrument, zurna is used in ensembles or orchestras to play some dance tunes, including “Jangi” and other musical patterns.
