News and Credits

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.

Hi Robert,
du warst schon seit langem Featured Member von diesem Netzwerk. Durch deine letzte Aktivität bist du nun wieder ganz nach oben katapultiert, die dazu geführt hat, dass dieser Kommentar wieder von jedem zu lesen ist, ohne dass man sich zuvor registrieren muss. Wär nett, wenn du dir Zeit nimmst, und mal deine Options hier auf OMN durchgehst und überlegst, dein Latest Activity Module wieder zu aktivieren. Du kannst es jetzt nämlich schon seit langem mit Drag & Drop an die linke Seite oder ganz nach unten - unter die Kommentare schieben. Und meine Kontaktanfrage mitsamt Begründung hast du erhalten?
Dank dir ... und liebe Grüße,
