In this short presentation the scales of the Macedonian lyre and the daire will be presented. We will talk about the construction of the instruments and the various parts that make them up, their operation and use in the local events of the Twelfth Day. We will analyze the playing technique, with references to each village and its local sound color.
A part of the musical repertoire of the Macedonian lyre will be presented, its limitations and possibilities due to construction and tuning. Finally, we will refer to its importance for today and the possible future uses or experiments on the instrument itself.
The three-hour workshop will take place on Saturday 30/7/2022 11 in the morning for the participants of the Western Week and on Saturday 6/8/2022 for the participants of the Eastern Week.
