Our Flute – part one. Kozák József discusses the wooden flute foundin the Hungarian langauage area. It is unique from European flutes and flutes from other parts of the world in that as a six holed flute, the wind opening rather than being on the same side as the sound holes – is on the back side of the flute. This aspect makes it possible for the flute player to change the position of his lower lip to produce additional sounds in a parallel octave or 5th. According to the tradition, the flute player also more or less growls into the flute,the resultant sound accompanies the rhythm of the tune.
