We had the pleasure of listening to Tugay playing traditional melodies from Turkey. He has been visiting Auroville regular for the past few years. He was playing the Ney a traditional sufi wind instrument. The Ney is an end-blown flute’originating from Iran that figures prominently in’Middle Eastern’music. In some of these musical traditions, it is the only wind instrument used. The ney has been played continuously for 4500 – 5000 years, making it one of the oldest musical instruments still in use.
