Fujara – The Slovak Queen of European Flutes
back to list
This publication is the result of the knowledge of many individuals, colleagues, friend, and collaborators of Oskár Elschek; their research and analysis decisively contributed to this informative book on the most traditional of Slovak folk instruments. The text deals with the instrument and its background, acoustic attributes, repertory and history. It also takes a look at the tradition of fujara making and playing in Slovakia. The book is richly illustrated by pictures and it comes with a DVD containing two documentaries on the techniques of fujara making and on the tradition of fujara playing in the Podpoľanie region of Central Slovakia.
