The Turkish Kaval is a wooden flute with a cylindrical shape and multiple finger holes. It is predominantly made from plum, although other types of wood such as fig, and apricot can also be used.
The Turkish Kaval is revered for its ability to convey the essence of Turkish folk music and traditional melodies. It is an instrument that embodies the pastoral and rural landscapes of Turkey, often associated with shepherds and their musical expressions. Playing the Turkish Kaval requires a combination of breath control, finger dexterity, and an understanding of Turkish musical modes, known as “makams.”
