This book traces the beginnings of musical instruments, both folk and classical to their earliest origins. These instruments are studied not only in relation to myth, folklore and religion but in the light of intercultural movements and developments of society. This book has the ability to interest the lay reader as well as the musicologist.
The author was a researcher in Ethnomusicology at the Cologne University.
