Kashubian folk instruments

Kashubian folk bands usually play on characteristic instruments.One of this instruments is the devil's fiddle (diôbelsczé skrzëpce).Once they were used to scare off the ghosts during Zaduszki (All Souls' Day). Now the instrument is used as a percussion in every Kashubian band.The mask of the devil with long, straggly hair coming out from a hat decorated with plates chiming with every move, is put on a long stick.The top of the instrument is connected by one, two or three playable wire strings with the fiddle-shaped plank.On the plank there’s a tin box filled with hard objects that rattle when shaken.

Next peculiar Kashubian instrument is burczybas (mrëczk or brómtop). 
It is a barrel filled with horse tail hair.Pulling the hair with wet fingers makes the instrument play “buzzing” bass sounds.

Next instrument is called bazuna.It belongs to the group of wind instruments. 
It is shaped like a long, thin horn and is from 95 cm to 165 cm long.It is made from boughs or trunks with no branches of young trees.The bark is then removed from the wood, which is later split in two halves empty on the inside.The two parts are then joined together with hoops made of wicker, willow wood, pine roots or sometimes metal (mainly brass, bronze or silver).Bazuna was a signalling instrument (used by the shepherds and fishermen), as well as ritual and music instrument.
