The wind musical instrument with eight holes on, but one hole on the backside, prepared from a mulberry tree, is named balaban or “Yasti” (Flat) balaban by people. To the edge a flat double reed pipe is placed, but to the middle a kharak is input. By removing the kharak the tune of the instrument is changed. In most cases, the balaban displays the role of the accompanist together with the gara zourna and saz. The wind musical instrument balaban is also played together with drum and goshanaghara without a zurna. The sound of balaban, the wind national musical instrument of the Azerbaijan people, even nowadays is heard in the weddings, in the ensemble of the folk orchestra too.
