The marovany is a box zither
used in the music
. Used in both religious
and secular music
, it is a box made of wood
with 12 or more metal strings
attached to each side. The sound it makes is bright
even. The marovany music I have heard is among the happiest
sounding I have ever encountered.
The marovany is often accompanied by the faray, a homemade rattle that is made from common material such as milk cans filled with sand or gravel.
