Bulgarian musical folk tradition includes a variety of musical instruments. The different folk regions feature various instruments and this is especially evident in recent times, when part of them have been replaced with the so-called 'modern' instruments. Along with the old ones, these modern instruments have already become part of the Bulgarian musical folklore. The wide variety of instruments used has inspired GEGA NEW to begin releasing the series called MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN BULGARIA. Each release of the series will present a separate instrument. The first programme features the tambura (GD 278), and the present second album is dedicated to the zurna. The zurna, a wooden whistle with cane reed and oboe-like sound, is among the most colourful wind instruments in traditional Bulgarian music. In the past, the zurna instrument was used throughout Bulgaria, but today this tradition has been preserved in Southwest Bulgaria only. Some performers, descendants of folk musicians, still sustain the zurna tradition in these regions. One of the most outstanding representatives is the Kurtov family from the village of Kavrakirovo, Petrich municipality. Just as the founder of the Kurtov musical family, Kurta Demo Limanov, his followers Ismail, Shein, Demko, Selim, Asen and others, carry the tradition of the family and preserve the characteristic Petrich style of performance. Demko Kurtov's Zurna Group is the most active of them. Besides him, it includes his son Samir (Krassimir), his brother-in-law Lyuben Fetov, and his nephew Ognyan Fetov. Incredible virtuoso players, they demonstrate in a convincing way the possibilities of the zurna instrument. The programme contains 16 instrumental performances of Bulgarian traditional music, recorded especially for this release.
