Double Mijwiz

 
The Double Mijwiz is an Egyptian reeded Instrument. The Mijwiz is a traditional musical instrument of Syria and the Druze. The Mijwiz has two identical bamboo reed tubes put together. Its name in Arabic means "dual," or "married" because of this.  The Mijwiz a double-pipe, single-reed woodwind instrument. The Mijwiz consists of two pipes of equal length, between 6 and 8 centimeters; each pipe has around five or six small holes for fingering. It requires a special playing technique known as "circular breathing," which is tricky but produces a continuous tone, without pausing to take a breath. The Mijwiz is played in Egypt and the Levant as an accompaniment to either belly dancing or dabke, the folkloric line dance of the Levant. The Mijwiz is most popular today in the Levant (Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, and Syria). Many popular folk songs either include the Mijwiz on recordings, or include the instrument's name in the song's lyrics.
