DAUTOVSKI TO PLAY 6000 YEAR OLD FLUTE
A press conference yesterday in view with an upcoming concert of Dragan Dautovski Quarter revealed details about an antique instrument, the ball flute – okarina which Dragan Dautovski will play at the Universal Hall on 19th April.
This is about a perfectly preserved 5000-6000-year-old music instrument dating back to the Neolithic found at the Mramor site outside the village of Caska, Veles Area in 1989.
“I am not as excited about the concert and meeting everybody as I am with the honour to play first the 6000-year-old unique and rare instrument. I have been asked what I am going to play in the concert, and I just say we are going to play music I bring inside and music the okarina has hidden in itself for so long,” Dautovski said in the press conference.
The concert will be divided in three parts and the ball flute will be presented in sound and image in the third. Dautovski said the flute makes three tones and he has come to 16 tones with a methodological approach.
This is the unique instrument of such kind found in Europe. Mrs. Trajanka Jovcevska, Custodian Advisor at the Veles National Museum said this would be the first step in presentation of the instrument and returning it to a museum case is the last they are considering. Further world promotion of the instrument will be under the name “Flute of Macedonia”.
MD: Wow, thats really cool, we wonder what kind of voice it has.
