Some words from Trân Quang Hai to Sylvain TRIAS
Sylvain TRIAS is an excellent Jew's harp player . He discovered this tiny instrument when he came to the Music Department (Musée de l'Homme) to learn overtones with me .
Since that date, he spent lots of time to master the Rajasthani Morchang (Jew's harp from Rajasthan) , then the Yakut Khomus (Jew's harp from Yakutia), and finally the Vietnamese Đàn Môi (Jew's harp from the ethnic group H'Mong in Vietnam).
Refined musician, gifted researcher , he will certainly become one of the brilliant expert of Jew's harp in the Western World . That is what I warmly wish for his future career .
