Kontrabasharpa Polska

This week I went to the Pitt Rivers Museum to visit the 1898 kontrabasharpa that they have stashed away. It was an amazing visit and I was quite blown away by the instrument. Of course I took along the camera and made a little blog. Although the instrument isn't playable I took along my own kontra and this tune. It's yet another Calle Svankvist, but you can't just go around calling all tunes Polska efter Calle Svankvist, can you? So this one is called Kontrabasharpa Polska to mark the occasion.
