    “Anatolian Zurna” by Earthtone
We proudly present our latest release “Anatolian Zurna” contains professionally played and recorded zurna melodies ready to take your musical experience to the next level!

“Zurna” is a Turkish folk instrument of the wind type. It was the first melody instrument of the Mehter teams in the Ottoman period. It has historically been played outdoors, during festive events such as weddings and public celebrations. It has also been used to gather crowds in order to make official announcements. It is a double-reed woodwind instrument which has a very bright, high frequency sound; it is almost inseparable with davul (Turkish bass drum) and it is thought that they constitute a good ensemble for traditional weddings. Zurna is constructed from one piece of wood, had one thumb-hole and up to eight finger-holes. Seven holes on the front, and one thumb hole, provide a range of over one octave including some transposition. The most common zurna playing technique is the continuous playing technique where while the air collected in the cave of the mouth is blown out from the reed, inhaling through nostrils occurs simultaneously.

In detail expect to find 505MB of raw content featuring 90 beautifully played “Zurna” loops at 100/120/130bpm and includes a dry version (w/o any additional e.q, compressor or reverb effects) and wet version of each, giving a total of 180 files. All loops are Key and tempo labeled for ease of use. All sounds are ready to fit straight in your tracks.

This instrument can be used accompanying other instruments and perfectly usable in variety of musical genres whether you’re producing world music, ethnic & organic folk music, experimental, cinematic, ambient, meditation, live lounge, electronica or even hip hop also suitable for film score, documentaries and media compositions as well - the only limit is your imagination!
