Reeded Salamuri Reeded Salamuri represents a wooden pipe of 23-36cm in length with a cut-off head. As usual, it has 7-8 front keys and one back key (between front first and second keys). The reed of Salamuri is a small tap (1,2-1,5cm) inside the pipe. Reeded Salamuri is more often made out of walnut and apricot trees. Reeded Salamuri is widely spread all over Georgia. Salamuri started its existence in pastoral atmosphere. Consequently, Salamuri’s repertoire mainly consists of shepherd melodies and is primarily played by men. It is usually accompanied by a Panduri.
