The Songs of the Ney

£14.99

Details

In Persian, the word ney means both the reed and the instrument made from it. Historians consider it to be the world’s oldest instrument. Its music is rich in structure, comprising melodic tones combined with a bounty of colourful rhythms. Played in various formations, it is most frequently heard in solo performance, with tombak accompaniment for rhythmic pieces. Performance with a singer is also both traditional and widespread.
