Video of the Day: New Instrument Called A Yaybahar Invented by Görkem Şen

yaybahar-gorkem-sen

Gorkem Sen has invented a pretty unique instrument that combines strings and drums; he calls it a Yaybahar. Vibrations from the strings are delivered to two drums via coiled springs. Have a listen to the wide variety of sounds and music performed on the instrument in the video below.
