Okazima – new transverse flute, invented and manufactured only in our workshop. This tool has its own little story. The name “OKAZIMA” – composed of two words: “Ocarina” and “Zima – Winter in eng”. The choice of these words is not accidental, the sound of the instrument resembles the melodic sounds of the ocarina and howling blizzard Siberian steppe.
Flute unique, has one closed end (which is closer to svistkovomu hole) and only 2 slot holes. Flute range of about two octaves. This is achieved blow and shielding end flutes right hand, when the left is holding a flute and closing slot openings. We produce okazimu in the key of G, G sharp. What does it mean, double tone on one flute? This means that turning okazimu to him on okazime salt, sharp can play in the key of G, and turning the flute by yourself – you can play in the key of G sharp.
The sound from okazimy soft blizzard in the first octave and windy in the second.
