Welcome to Malta's Musical Legacy

The Maltese bagpipe, known as iż-żaqq, is particularly important because it is not exactly like any other bagpipe. However, there are certain similarities, most strikingly with the Greek tsambouna. The Maltese żaqq is made out of the skin of an animal – generally of prematurely-born calf, but also of goat or dog. The complete skin is used including all four legs and tail. The chanter (is-saqqafa) is made up of two adjacent pipes, one with five fingerholes (left) and another with one (right). The chanter terminates with one large cattle horn.

Iż-żaqq Maltija, li tindaqq jew waħedha jew mat-tanbur, hija magħmula minn ġilda sħiħa ta'gidi jew ta'għoġol bis-saqajn u bid-denb. Fl-imgħoddi kienet issir ukoll mill-ġild ta' kelb. Fin-naħa ta' l-għonq tiddaħħal dik li tissejjaħ is-saqqafa li biha tindaqq iż-żaqq. Id-daqqaq iżomm iż-żaqq taħt dirgħajh bis-saqajn ta' l-annimal 'il fuq, jonfoħ ġo l-imserka, u jdoqq fuq is-saqqafa
