Workshop: Making Sufi Music Instrument “Ney”, end-blown flute ($220 USD Per Person)
The ney is an end-blown flute that we encounter mostly in Middle Eastern music. The ney has been played continuously for 4,500–5,000 years, making it one of the oldest musical instruments which is still in use. This original ney-making experience will introduce you to the world of Sufism. You will be able to work together with an expert ney-maker. Participants will make their own instruments from reeds and they will later try blowing their own neys. You can keep your ney as a souvenir.
You can also ask questions of the artist and have more information about this instrument and the kind of people who play this and where and how they play.
This is probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Come, join us!
