Musical Bones > Musical Bones

Musical bones and information about musical bones used for music can be found here for your review. Second to that of the human voice, "musical bones" are the oldest instruments known to man throughout the anatomy of music and sound. 2.5 million years ago, musical bones, stones and wood, then used as tools, were also one of our first forms of musical instruments. Idiophones are instruments that produce sound, and music, from the substance of the instrument itself. Some Irish musical bones are made from ribs of a goat or sheep. Similar styles of playing music using musical bones, wood and even stone are found all over the world stretching from South India to Mongolia, to the six Celtic regions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Bretagne, France and Asturias-Spain. To hold and play the musical bones, two musical bones are cradled in one hand and balanced vertically while the forearm and hand produce a rotating and waving motion, allowing the musical bones to pendulum and strike each other producing sound.
