Reminded of this by a Georgian Christmas dinner with the neighbours.

I have a couple of salamuris (very good ones, bought by my Georgian neighbour from the best maker in the country) but I am a bit lost as to what to do with them. There doesn't seem to be any material about them on paper, in Georgian or any other languages. One has a fingering system something like one of the varieties of Turkish kaval, the other is just plain weird. I can't begin to match what I see on YouTube videos with what I can pull off on my salamuris. Anybody know of any introductory videos or texts? (Material in Georgian is fine, I can just go across the road for a translation).

Animaterra - look up Sathanao. They are the business.
