Instrument jew's harp

One of the oldest of all musical instruments still played today, the Jew's harp most likely originated in Central Asia or China, from which it spread, before the discovery of the Americas, as far east as the Philippines and as far west as England and Ireland.

The updated version will also include high-speed double-sided striking techniques , and a technique for playing two jew's harps simultaneously Special attention will also be given to related topics, such as spectral analysis of jew's harp music, precise control of the muscles that are involved in sound extraction, and other important details.

This article explains what a Jew's harp is and its global appeal; briefly explains what we know about the English language name; looks at the archaeological evidence; considers the relationship between instruments in Asia and Europe, and, finally, their likely transfer east to west.

In fact, komuz is cognate for the names of several musical instruments, used extensively by Turkic people and key to the music of Central Asia , just as Kazakh kobyz ( Uzbek qo'biz) (bowed instruments), the Tuvan and Sakha or Yakut xomus (a jaw harp), Azeri gopuz, Dagestan agach komus, Avar people temur, and Turkish kopuz.

Championing the British artists that contributed to the iconic movement, the gallery will showcase more than over 70 eclectic works from 42 artists, including Leonora Carrington, Francis Bacon, Henry Moore and Paul Nash, as well as lesser known figures such as Marion Adnams, Conroy Maddox, Reuben Mednikoff and Grace Pailthorpe.

SOUNDS OF SIBERIA: YULIYANA KRIVOSHAPKINA with NACHYN CHOREVE (OK, you're going to either love me or hate me for sending you to this but I'm betting on the former of course, who in balmy SoCal wouldn't want to be transported to the frigid, howling tundra of Siberia and these two can do it, wolfpacks and giant-antlered reindeer, fire and ice, with Yuliyana forever changing your notion of what a Jew's harp can do but her form is the much more versatile khomus, national instrument of the Sakha Republic, and Choreve is a soloist in the Tuvan State Philharmonic and founding member of Tuvan psychedelic rock band Hartyga and of course an accomplished throat singer, OK, you're pretty interested now, aren't ya?), Fri 8 p.m., McCabe's, SM, $25.
