Learn how to make a Kawala from recycled materials.
The Kawala is a traditional Egyptian flute that dates back to ancient Egypt. It is a simple hollow cane flute blown at the end, with six finger holes. Yet it produces a uniquely rich sound with immense temperamental and harmonic possibilities. It is unique among other instruments in that it can produce both a scale and a glissando, allowing the musician to play any note and therefore any key, thus offering tonal flexibility.
In this workshop you will be introduced to the history and use of the kawala, learn how it is made, and be able to make and play your own instrument.
Organised by BELONG in collaboration with B4, this workshop is led by Dr Adham Al-Sayyad, a multidisciplinary researcher, manufacturing engineer and Kawala player.
