The Istrian mih

The Istrian mih is the latest type of mih. It does not contain as many decorations as the mih from Dalmatia or Herzegovina. Its bag is made of goatskin. It has a blowpipe, or kanela, a kutla (barrel) and the pipe, or channel. The pipe is usually shorter than the other types of mih, so it makes a specific sound. There are five holes on its left side for playing.  Between the third and fourth holes looking from above there is a gap, i.e. in that area the hole is either closed or nonexistent. On the right side there are three holes for playing. Because of this positioning of the holes for playing the music played on the Istrian mih is specific and different from the rest.

The Istrian mih is primarily used as an accompaniment for dancing. One can also sing to the mih and there are interesting combinations of playing the mih with others typical Istrian instruments (the roženica or the šurle).
