12 Weird Musical Instruments (Part 1 of 4)

I wonder what it would sound like if you put all of these in a twelve-piece orchestra?


#1: Aeolian Wind Harp

This harp is named after Aeolus, the Greek god of wind. It is not played by a human, but in fact is played by the wind vibrating its strings.


#2: Armonica

Benjamin Franklin created an early version of this instrument, which uses glass bowls filled with water to create a haunting sound.


#3: Cajón

Originating in Peru, this drum-like instrument was originally just a box with a sounding hole, but nowadays has an updated electric version.


Part 2 coming tomorrow!
