Diplica | Sviroka croata

Diplica | Sviroka croata

Una sviroka de Croacia, un tipo particular de diplica (aerófono sencillo, de lengüeta simple), hecha de un tallo de centeno en la isla de Silba. Estos instrumentos han sido empleados hasta tiempos recientes en las islas de Olib, Silba y Rab. Es interesante notar que la sviroka es un instrumento mayormente femenino, utilizado por las mujeres durante las cosechas. A diferencia de otros tipos de diplica en Croacia, la lengüeta de la sviroka se abre de abajo hacia arriba, de forma similar a la de muchos instrumentos de viento de Oriente Medio.

[A sviroka, a type of Croatian diplica (simple, single reed aerophone) made of rye stems from the island of Silba. Such instruments have been played until recently on the islands of Olib, Silba and Rab. It is interesting that the sviroka was played mostly by women, usually when they would go harvesting. Unlike the other types of diplica in Croatia, the reed on a sviroka is cut upwards, similar to wind instruments in the Middle East, which indicates how long these instruments have been a part of Croatian tradition].
