Ainu Traditional Dance !

by Kazu

I've seen the indigenous people playing the musical instrument that creates the same kind of sounds as this Ainu lady played. 
This instrument called "Muckuri" is made of wood and a string but what I heard before was the sound created with a small piece of metal plate.
That instrument was of Inuit in the northern area of Canada. The metal plate with thin slits was tapped by fingers and the sound resonated in the mouth of the player.
