Title: Is learning the Ney different from learning the Kawala?
Post by: elmarianexx on August 16, 2015, 02:26:42 AM
I took lessons on the Kawala for a few months before moving to another state. Before moving I ordered a Ney from Turkey with plans to have lessons on it. Now, I'll probably be on my own trying to learn to play it. Is there a difference in playing the two flutes? I know the Ney has a whole on the bottom of the flute whereas the Kawala does not?

I recently started learning Arabic nay myself, but my understanding is that nay and kawala aren't too different. Here's a video series about Turkish nay to help get you started :)
