The flute is a traditional Serbian instrument which still has many devotees. It is a symbol and a sound of Serbia. It seems that this is the sound which best suits the Serbian national costume. The flute is made from wood, usually of elder, although this is not the best wood for flutes. Beginners first learn to play on the single flute, while the maestros later tackle the double flute. There is an annual gathering of flute players, “Oj, Moravo”, in Prislonica near Cacak during July. Competitions in flute and double flute, as well as duet, are held on a decorated stage in the centre of the village.
