Bark whistle

Fičefaj – a replica of bark whistle

Bark whistle is an old Slovene shepherd’s instrument. It was originally made from hollow plants or bark. This fun instrument is great for everybody – from children and beginners to 100 years old and professionals. It has been popular in jazz since the 1920s. It is especially good at imitating bird sounds. It is made from electro coloured aluminium to sustain the wetness from mouth while blowing.

How to play? Play the fičefaj as an ordinary whistle. By pushing the inner stick up or down you can create a melody.
