I saw, you added them in the "forum" section as well.
Here is a short [5 min] documentary about the traditional instrument of Slovakia, called "fujara".
It's native to the central region of Slovakia, where the shepperds were herding the sheep.

That's impressive. I've seen those instruments on paintings from about 18th century, I didn't know they're called "Gusli". We have an instrument called "Husle", but it is the violin.
How do you call the violin in Russia?
In Poland, violin is called "skrzypce".

In Russia, it's written as "скрипка", and sounds close enough to Polish, but without sound combination of [rz], and with ending [ka] instead of [ce]. I'm bad at transcriptions, but it looks like [skripka] with analogous latin letters :)

Yes, you got it, it does. That's probably the original Slavic word for it.
Let's ask the Balkan Slavs - Raven, or anyone - how do you say violin in the Balkans?

There are so many old epic tales (bylin) about musicians with gusli, and most of all i love the tale about novgorodian merchant Sadko, who played on gusli in the underwater kingdom :D

The picture is from amazing soviet movie about him.
Can you recommend something from the Slovak folklore to read or watch? Truly an interesting theme for me.
