Shan kobyz.

Visit in Kazakhstan.

The shan kobyz is a metallic, tongue-played instrument made of silver and other precious metals.
To play it, it is held by the teeth and the mouth cavity serves as a resonator. Real polyphony is achieved owing to the easily achieved overtones and their distinctiveness.
Its chamber sound is most suitable for the lyrical songs. The shan kobyz is a favorite instrument for children and women alike.Kazakh Musical Instruments .
