a common space for harmonic overtones
The mission of the LOOPING jaw harp orchestra (LJHO) is to contribute to the diversity of musical species. While guitars are not allowed in the band, there is room for three dozen jaw harps, steel pans, marimba, several wind instruments as well as overtone and undertone singing.
With a reliable sense of style, the LJHO alternates between different genres: its multi-instrumentalists cover every musical terrain from jazz and world music to folk, rock, reggae, punk and pop. Still, what is unique to them is their special sound, which results from the LJHO’s extraordinary line-up.
