Around the World in 80 Musical Instruments Book


How on earth do you play a bass that's 3.5 metres tall? How can you play a theremin without touching it? Can you turn a cave's stalactites into an organ? This beautifully illustrated book covers traditional instruments from various cultures, such as the gamelan and mbira, as well as the creations of modern artists and musicians, such as the Wintergatan Marble Machine and the eerie sounding yaybahar. Readers will even discover a band that plays exclusively on instruments fashioned from fresh vegetables.
