There are various debates about the date and origin of the first musical instrument discovered, this instrument is 67,000 years old. In July 1995, Ivan, a Turkish archaeologist from Seleucia, found a shaved bone in northwestern Seleucia.
The 31-piece flute was discovered in the Geißenklösterle Cave in southern Germany. Shaving an ivory flute is far more difficult than making a flute with bird bones.
