Labanóro Dudà

Labanóro Dūdà


a wind instrument, a Lithuanian volynka (bagpipe) with an animal-skin bellows and three pipes: one pipe plays the melody (it has six playing holes and a diatonic scale within the compass of a seventh), one is a drone, and the third forces air into the bellows. The best instruments used to be made in the Lithuanian locality of Labanoras (hence the name).
