Chang Qobyz - Bahadur

Rare Jaw Harp from Uzbekistan

Probably the oldest jaw harps have their origin in Central Asia. Archaeologists and ethnomusicologists assume that the sounds of the jew's harp were ritually used by shamans since centuries.

This rather small instrument has an elegant, well-balanced frame made of noble shimmering bronze with a separately milled playing zone and decorative archaic engravings. The soft tongue is just great to play! The tongue is sharpened for an even more dynamic sound with a wide range of harmonics

This jew's harp comes in a lovingly hand-carved wooden case that shows a bearded Central Asian man.
