Zhivko Vasilev – bulgarian musician from Sofia,
a wonderful performer on traditional Bulgarian kaval
and shupelka flutes tested instruments from our workshop:
Shupelka is an interesting flute, similar in sound production with kavale.
The tool has its own unique and beautiful sound.
It is made of high quality wood and the craftsmanship is incredible.
I recorded real-time video where I play shupelka,
so you can hear the live sound of the instrument.
Shupelka sounds amazing, even in Latin music.
This is much more than just a folk flute.
I highly recommend the tool, and I would like
to thank the workshop “Harmony of Sound”
to play this instrument and make a review!
