Russian Instrument The Volynka

The volynka Russian: волынка, – is a Slavic bagpipe. Its etymology comes from the region Volyn, Ukraine, where it was borrowed from Romania.

The instrument has gained popularity in stage performance. It has been used in a number of songs by Russian rock bands DDT, Aquarium, and Aria. It also appears more in Russian folk music and Ukrainian folk music ensembles.

The volynka is constructed around a goat skin air reservoir into which air is blown through a pipe with a valve to stop air escaping.

One of the Volynka's relative instruments the Cimpoi
