Got Wind? Make Music!

exploring the sounds of the wind

The gourd harp has much in common with the Indian sitar and similar instruments. Two of the gourds are resonators in the traditional sense, like a guitar or sitar's soundbox. The middle gourd resonates through a hollow tube into the gourd.

The bamboo "neck" is like a sitar or guitar neck reversed so that the curve is on the top, which makes the air movement more efficient.

The underside is enclosed, adding more space for resonation.

I will try to post more detailed pictures soon.
The two outside gourds are great resonators. It sounds great.
