Music - Romania
The fluier is a kind of flute, which is used in Romania’s folk music. It is the equivalent to the Irish tin whistle, but it is made out of wood with the lower aperture of reduced diameter. There is a wide variety of versions. The largest fluier is known as the fluier mare or caval, whereas the smallest version is known as the fluieras or trisca. Similar musical instruments can be found in neighboring countries, such as the Greek floghera, the Ukrainian dudka and the Bulgarian duduk.
