Although the Carpathians are not the largest and highest mountains, they have their world-wide "most", the largest number of folk instruments. No other mountain area can match them, be it the Alps or the Himalayas. No other mountain area can match them, be it the Alps or the Himalayas. The sound of these instruments, combined with singing, accompanied the Carpathian highlanders from birth to death in all family and annual rites. In this richness of musical varieties are melodies that roam the entire Carpathians from the Balkans to Moravia. As were the paths of Wallachian shepherds.
That is why an exhibition devoted to folk instruments of the Carpathians (Piwniczna Zdrój, Municipal and Communal Culture Center) was arranged on the Wallachian Culture Trail. Because music for the Carpathian highlanders was not an addition or background to life, but its essence. It is here that we find Wallachian drawing common to the culture of its inhabitants. The exhibition features several dozen instruments or photographs divided into 4 groups: aerophones, chordophones, idiophones and membranophones. The organizers' goal was to design the interactive exhibition, because the instrument is not for viewing only for playing. That is why their presentation is such that one can extract sound from each of them. For the less brave a multimedia presentation is prepared with film samples of people playing. The exhibition, through mock-ups, also introduces the compositions of Carpathian bands from the oldest - baggage bands, to those from the beginning of the 20th century. The practice of chasing string bands divided by prime, seconds, bass can be familiarized using pastoral bells. The projector placed and the amphitheater shape of the exhibition hall imposes the use of the exhibition room also to play films for more visitors. Thanks to this, it is an ideal place to conduct demonstration lessons or to create a Carpathian film festival in the future.
