Musical intruments in Bulgaria - Gadulka (Musical intruments in Bulgaria - Gadulka)

 

 

This is a continuation of the series MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA. The previous albums featured tambura (GD 278), zurna (GD 276), wind orchestra (GD 299) and gaida (GD 106). We are adding to this series an ancient instrument – gadulka, which has changed to a great extent the musical development in Europe.
Before the emergence of the first bowed string instrument of this kind, the Morin khuur or gusle, the peoples of ancient China, Egypt, India, Hellas, Rome, etc. had no knowledge of such an instrument, in spite of the richness and diversity of their musical culture. This landmark invention of the Bulgarian people (to produce a sound by rubbing a bow on a string, and in order to obtain different pitch tones – to place a finger on the string, i.e. by respectively shortening and extending it) changed to a great extent the musical development in Europe, Asia and North Africa.
