|Short Description||by Ginger Summit and Jim Widess. Gourds are natural resonators, so they are perfect for musical instruments. They come a range of sizes and shapes that they are amenable to a variety of instruments - gongs, shakers, rattles, rain sticks, tambourines, mbira (African keyboard), xylophones, drums, kazoos, harps, lyres, lutes, fiddles, banjos, zithers, flutes, horns, reeds and more! This book offers directions for making over 60 instruments, along with advice on how to play them. Those with no musical skills can make the aeolian instruments that are powered by the wind. Richly illustrated with color photographs, many showing instruments in use in their native countries. A fascinating book from a musical anthropology aspect as well. Softcover 144pp|
