Nadishana @ Airvault'09 - Solo on Ghost Catcher

http://shop.nadishana.com/ Unique Item!

Ghost Catcher (stringed) is a traditional instrument of Kuzhebar people (South Siberia). It is a kind of mouth bow, but unlike other mouth bows it has little fingerboard and 2 strings, so it is possible to play melodies on it strumming the strings by right hand, and pressing the strings to the fingerboard by left hand. It is also possible to play on it with a stick, this technique reminds the berimbao playing. The instrument should be placed in front of the mouth and modulated like a jaw harp. We sell
improved version of the ghost catcher which we modified and developed ourselves. Shipped with a small stick.

Ghost Catcher is named so because it was used by shamans in Siberia for ritual reasons. They believed that the sound of this instrument have a special influence to the insects and ghosts. They was trying to cooperate with the "collective consciousness" of ghosts or insects because people can do many things with their help which they can't do alone. They tell that this is "quiet instrument, because originally it was supposed to be played not for people but for ghosts and insects".
They also used it to "hunt" on ghosts. Kuzhebar people used to believe that they need to eat special kind of ghosts, because human body needs it. They use to classify those ghosts to 3 categories by edibility: edible, inedible (poor) and poisonous. Only strongest shamans was able to hunt to "poisonous ghosts".
