Weird Instruments: Beer Bottle Organ, Chrysalis, and Violimba
Share some unique and weird music trivia with your child. The beer bottle organ is a walnut instrument that sounds like a pipe organ, but made with real beer bottles! The chrysalis is a 2-sided, wheel-shaped instrument with 82 strings for spokes that sounds like a harp in the wind when spun. The violimba is played by drawing a bow across pipes that are hooked to a tall metal stand — the resulting sound is eerie.
