Zurna

 

a wind instrument popular among the peoples of the Caucasus (the Azerbaijanis, Armenians, Georgians, and Avars), Middle Asia (called the surnay by the Tadzhiks and the Uzbeks), China (the sona), and Iran. It is the precursor of the oboe and resembles the latter in both shape and tone. It uses the diatonic scale extending slightly over \V2 octaves (usually from C’). The zurna is played in folk ensembles with other national percussion and stringed instruments.
