The jaw harp, an ubiquitous yet rare instrument, also known as the dan moi, morsing, maranzano, and “scacciapienseri”: the banisher of thoughts. Small yet powerful.
Morsing, Dan Moi, Vargan, Khomus, Doromb. Jaw harps are also known as mouth harps (but that can be confused with a reference to the harmonica). A long time ago — and some people still use this term– they were called Jew’s harp in English, for unknown reasons (many theories exist but they are not an instrument common in any Jewish genre of music). I will add some links to scholarly articles on the subject. In England and Ireland, they are sometimes called trumps or trump harps, but for obvious reasons, this term is to be avoided… at least til we’re out of this mess in the USA!
