Jaw Harp

Played in many parts of Europe, Southeast Asia, USA, and in southern India, the jaw harp is a generic name for this type of instrument. Some versions are made of bamboo and pressed against the lips. Generally, the metal versions rest against the teeth of a slightly open mouth. Pictured above are very fine quality jaw harps made in Hungary by Zoltán Szilágyi (sound sample below). The bottom photo is a traditional jaw harp from South India known as morsing (or murchang).
