Dvoyanka is an old music instrument, known on the Balkans since Antiquity times. Nowadays it is still popular in contemporary ethno and jazz music. It is a double flute used in accompanying vocal duet styles. It is to be held vertically. The finger holes are cut into the lower part of the right pipe; the tone quality is soft and mellow. If blown simultaneously, the two dvoyanka pipes produce an effect similar to the one of a high-pitched bagpipe.
