Journey around the globe to explore a musical
cave, peek inside a piano, and find out how to play an instrument without
touching it.

From ancient instruments made from shells to instruments that
make music with lightning, discover an orchestra of instruments you can shake,
pluck, scrape, hit, and blow--and how you can make your own. Grouped into
percussion instruments, wind, and string, as well as the weird and wonderful
that defy categorization, Around the World in 80 Musical Instruments
covers traditional instruments from various cultures, such as the gamelan and
mbira, as well as the creations of modern artists and musicians, such as the
Wintergatan Marble Machine and the eerie-sounding yaybahar. Readers will even
discover a band that plays exclusively on instruments fashioned from fresh
vegetables and makes the scraps into soup to serve to the audience

Includes a stunning central gatefold that opens out to reveal
all 80 trees and how they relate to each other in families.

A visual celebration of the huge variety of musical
instruments found across the globe, from those you know to those you almost
certainly don't
