Ethnic Wind Instruments

When most people think of wind instruments, they usually think of clarinets, flutes or saxophones, typically the ones most beginners will pick up as they enter band at the elementary school, middle school or high school level. Music Urchin carries ethnic wind instruments, the same family of instruments, only more exotic, and often easier to play. From India, you will find a nice representation with the harmonium, bansuri flute, duduk and snake charmer. Instruments that have origins from the British Isles are the bagpipes, Irish flute and the Medieval pipe. Musical instruments that are more familiar with western culture are the didgeridoo and Native American flute. Most of these ethnic wind instruments have a very simple fingering system an are fairly easy to play, unlike the complex key configurations that are found in most traditional wind instruments played in the symphonic or jazz bands of United States and Europe.
