Bagpipe of Northern Čičarija (plum and cherry wood)

A reconstruction of a “mih” bagpipe of village Golac, based on a preserved chanter fragment, displayed in the Slovene Ethnographic Museum

The instrument is essentially a slightly distinct type of an Istrian instrument, still alive today, called šurle. However, nowadays it is most often seen and played without the bag. 

The local terms for the instrument, as have been used in Golac and documented by Hrovatin, are “mih” for the instrument, “roženice” for the two chanters and “kanela” for the blowpipe.

I’ve made this instrument in 2015.
