Regards to you all #blurtians ,
Here's a short description and introduction into the ancient world of the egyptian flute, named "kawla".
Here you ca listen a song that i've composed for this amazing instrument, named kawla on our Tribe's album.
The name of the composition is Gnawango.

The kawla is an end-blown flute used in arabic/middle eastern music.
It is similar to the arabic ney and the turkish ney but has six finger holes, while the ney has seven, including one in the back.
The kawla comes in up to nine different sizes, according to the maqam scales that will be used in the music.
The kawla is a egyptian flute that is played by blowing through its end.
The kawla has the fundamental tonal structure customary among the Egyptian folk music community, and the basis for many folk melodies, instrumental or vocal.
The kawla is hollow and has four knots, with six fingerholes in a straight line along it.
The instrument has up to nine different sizes, according to the scale required in a musical composition.
Kawla is most often played today at religious festivals and weddings and it has its origin as a shepherds tool, used to guide their flock.
For this reason the kawla seems to assist in any musical composition that contains a “call-and-response” sequence.
My kawla flutes were build by master Saber Ali from Cairo, Egypt.
Soon i'll post more compositions of mine played on kawla flute.
Enjoy the music dear #blurtians.
I'm curious if people around @blurt.blog would love to see more posts like this one, directed much more to the educational side of the vast platform of music ... if yes ... feel free to ask questions in the comments section or you can open topics on which we should discuss ... about music/art/ethnic modes/ maqam music or any other spectrums in music.
Have a Blessed Time wherever you are, dear #blurtians.
