instruments have played an unprecedented role in the
history of Azerbaijani traditional music. The earliest
examples of wind instruments, dating back several
thousand years ago, were undoubtedly made of reed.
This tradition has survived Until the present.
wind instruments-such as the ney, tutak, musigar,
sumsu and their varieties-are also made of cane and
reed. But other materials are now used as well, such
as animal bone, horn, baked clay and various kinds
of wood and copper.
diapason of the wind instruments affects their technical
and artistic capabilities. For example, the diapason
of the zurna, the most common wind instrument, does
not exceed two octaves.
wind instruments are divided into the following types:
Instruments with a mouthpiece-zurna and balaban
Instruments without a mouthpiece-ney and tutak
Instrument with bellows-tulum, garmon.
