What is an unusual musical instrument that you have heard and were fascinated by?
The saw! I once saw this band and this person sat there and played the saw with a bow and it was so beautiful! I've always said I'd like to learn that one
I think the musical saw is probably the most unusual instrument I have ever heard off, I watched a young man play You raise me up with it. Sounds like a really haunting ladies voice
A rubber band. Yes, a rubber band, a huge one at that. Just like in the song by the Spinners "Rubber band Man."
The theramin always looks like it would be fun to have a go at but the most unusual instrument I have ever heard is the Australian dijeridoo (not sure of spelling), it sounds like nothing else you have ever heard.
The shofar. My daughter played it once years ago at an ecumenical service in Connecticut. I've never seen such a beautiful instrument. They say it's very difficult to play.
have you heard the 'fujara' from the mountainous part of Slovakia? Hearing it from the top of the hill, when a lonely player puts this long wooden flute to his mouth and the magically sad and longing sound fills in the valleys all around is unforgettable:)
Shehnai, it is slowly geting extinct but I really love to listen to it. Please try and listen to it alteast once. Here is a link to the Shehnai maestro performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hveeMDC6Dro
I knew someone who used to bang on a metal desk. He made an amazing sound that resembled Salsa rhythms using this metal desk.
Ice drums - seriously cool Check out this video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Al5jRHjYgrY
The didgeridoo. I believe its origin is Australian Aboriginal. I came across it while looking for a natural method to help with my husband's snoring. It's also effective for sleep apnoea! It works by exercising and toning the throat muscles so they do not collapse and block the airway during sleep. Fascinating, eh?
