 Re: Macedinian Gypsy Sound
Author: Ash

Hi,

I've recently decided to purchase a clarinet, however I am not entirely sure as I can't figure out what exact instrument is used in the macedonian gypsy (roma) sound. I have no formal musical training and have only mild knowledge which I have 'picked-up' the in last couple of years, so I am going to need your help.

I've uploaded 2 examples (www.geocities.com/macexample/) of the style which I am talking about, and I was wondering what instruments are being used. (?) I think in the 1st Example a zurla or traditional oboe (macedoniadirect.com/music/instrum/zurla.htm) is being used and a saxophone in the second, however I am not entierly sure, if anyone can tell me it would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone know of any examples where a clarinet is being used so I can see the difference.

Finally, am I correct in assuming that the gypsy sound is only a style of playing where any number of instruments can be used, such as the clarinet, sax, zurla, etc...?? I know I am not entierly clear but I just need to know what is the predominant instrument used in the style of playing that is similar to the 2 examples.

Any help will be greatly appreciated...
