Fujara on UNESCO list, Flash News, November 28, 2005
A music CD sent to us by some friends in California has a fujara featured on two of the tracks. It was quite a surprise when that sound appeared.
I have no idea where this CD might be available, but the duo performing seem to be Californians. The fujara mixed with orchestral instruments is haunting and beautiful. The CD title is "Songs for Humanity," and the duo's name is Cahill and Delene.
The first time I heard a fujara remains the best. We were on a climbing trip in the Tatras, winter 1990, and from the chata (cottage) in Tatranská Lomnica, we heard this unfamiliar musical sound.
Going downstairs to the dining room, we found the owner's son practising his fujara. It represents the sound of the Tatras to me.
