    Trad.Attack! While the mouth harps recently found in Russia were crafted and played well over a millennium ago, they seem quite modern compared to the world’s oldest known musical instruments— 43,000-year-old flutes made from bird bone and mammoth ivory that were found in a cave in southern Germany.

    Yakuts have been known for their blacksmith skills for a long time. One of the greatest example is khomus musical instrument which has been introduced ages ago, but still widely used by local musicians. It consists only of two parts; frame and tongue, each part is made of different types of steel.

    This shrutibox is ideal for people who look for a small and light instrument, e. g. for travelling. The bellows are relatively small, therefore you need a little practice and constant attention to keep the sound stable and even – especially when several levers are opened. The frame is made of massive wood and the sides are made of ply-wood. Including a carrying bag. Tonal range from c to c’. Each instrument is individually hand-crafted and might differ from our description.

    There are many theories for the origin of the name Jew’s harp. According to the Oxford English Dictionary , this name appears earliest in Walter Raleigh’s Discouerie Guiana in 1596, spelled "Iewes Harp". The "jaw" variant is attested at least as early as 1774 7 and 1809, 8 the "juice" variant appeared only in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

    Significant value is added to this monograph by the inclusion of an audio CD featuring recordings by The Wright Family. The ensemble, consisting of brothers John, Michael, and David and David’s daughter Lucy, specialises in traditional tunes from the British Isles, and the musicianship displayed here is a benchmark of what the instrument is capable of in a melodic context. The book and the CD also reflect the legacy of Michael’s eldest brother John (1939-2013), a celebrated folk musician responsible for introducing the instrument to the rest of the family—and many members of the public—through his virtuosic playing and research (Dournon-Taurelle and Wright 1978 Dournon-Taurelle, Geneviève and John Wright. 1978.

    No it isn’t anti sematic. you have made it so. by the way it is also known as an English Trump. Although Donald can trace his ancestry back to the UK via his Scottish mother, a trump in the UK is completely something different ie a FART. the jews harp is something that all cultures on this planet have used as a musical instrument. no it isn’t of jewish origin but an English trump is also further than the original origin. I don’t hear people saying you cant call it that. What next a Cor Anglais cant be called an English Horn or worse a love oboe (oboe d’amore)? Get a grip.

    I bought a bunch for a musician friend last time I was in Sa Pa. 7 for $1 USD. They are also available in Ha Noi, but are slightly more expensive. (Although, so incredibly cheap compared to here in the U.S.; who really cares.) In Sa Pa, little girls and boys come up to all the tourists offering them for sale. In Ha Noi, I had trouble using words to explain what I wanted. But when I took a Jews’ Harp out of my pocket (that I had bought in Sa Pa), I was easily directly to several places in the Old Quarter where they were for sale.

    At Scoil na gCláirseach last month I presented a lecture and a workshop on the medieval Gaelic harp traditions. The lecture outlined my recent work on the setup and tuning of the medieval Gaelic harps, while the workshop later in the week explored the different strands of evidence for medieval Gaelic music.

    As for the Sakha people, for him, khomus is a traditional musical instrument, moreover, it occupies the main place among others, which is not peculiar to any other people, the musician says. And it has come down to our days thanks to the preservation of traditions, although even a musical instrument had to undergo serious tests. In the Soviet era, he was considered a relic of the past and there was an opinion that this "relic" should remain in the past. Sometimes it was forbidden to play on the khomus – so a simple musical instrument managed to get into politics.
