i dont know English or even Slovak original name, but I think the latter will sound the same as Polish.
This is traditional instrument from Slovakian mountains, being played there for generations. Knowing how to play this helps a lot of Slovakians learn quicker to play didjeridoo.
Traditionally it is played in environment like here, in the mountains, by shephards, but it has become important in folk and even pop groups.
Here we have man who decided with his family to buy some land left over around ruined village, abandoned by German refugees after the war. He wants to bring his little bit of peace to this land scarred by history and is going to stay open for anyone who wants to come and live there with them. For the start, they live in tipis, but maybe reconstruction of old German farm buildings ( or actually building them again, they are so devastated ) will follow.
Right now on the land is still happening a local Czech Rainbow Gathering, so I am continuing my series from Germany ( see explanation there ).

Nice picture and also like the story that goes along with it.
I am a musician myself and so I am very curious how it may sounds.. specialy when it will be used out in the open air! It must give a wonderfull effect.
The picture has nice lines in it, also the light and colours are brought very well.
One thing that can not be seen now.. how long is the instrument actualy.. :o) Anyway.. size doesn't matter thay say :o)
