Pekko Käppi and the Jouhikko (Finnish Bowed Lyre)

"It used to be the instrument of kings, and in the turn of the twentieth century, it was the instrument of crippled beggars. And now, slowly, in this century it has become... well, I don't know what it has become... something in the between, but I'm quite sure that kings don't play it."
Additional listening on the jouhikko: a good video of the Jouhiorkesteri (Horse-Hair Orchestra)
