Bulgarian folk music instruments

Kaval, gaida and gadoulka are the most diffused Bulgarian folk musical instruments. Some of these instruments are used in the whole country, but others only in special regions. For example the most used musical instrument in Rhodopes is the mountain gaida named Rhodopian gaida too; in the region of Pirin - the different kind of tambouras; in southeast Thrace - kaval, gaida, gadoulka, tapan.

According to the way of reproducing the sound, the Bulgarian folk musical instruments are three groups:

  - Stringing - different kind of tambouras
2. Wind instruments - kaval, gaida, duduk, dvoyanka, etc.
