Yaybahar is a beautiful new instrument created by Görkem Şen from Istanbul, Turkey.
It is an acoustic instrument where the vibrations from the strings are transmitted through coiled springs to frame drums and converted to sound by membranes echoing back and forth on the coiled springs creating a hypnotic surround sound. You’ll also hear Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’ at four and a half minutes in. Plus, the amazing room and view add to the whole experience. I’d love to hear it live.
