VoIP vs Landline

I like shawms, but I've never heard of a zurna before.
I finally remembered to look up zurna for your edification. There are
many hits, so I picked one that was very clear. If you watch and listen,
you can see & hear the player doing circular breathing, necessary since
long unbroken melodic lines are traditional.

A typical ensemble might be just the zurna and a drum; in this video,
one person occasionally taps the table :)


Here's the video that the above friend sent me that made me equate the
Chinese instrument to a zurna:


And here's what Wikipedia has to say about the zurna and its family:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zurna

Among its list of names, as well as in the text, the article mentions
suo na, but they spell it as one word, suona.

Note that part of the etymology of zurna is 'nay'.

Thanks very much. No time now, but I'll look at it later.
