Homework: Odd Musical Instruments
ANDREA SEABROOK, host:
For this week's homework assignment, I need you to go up to your attic and dust off that kora.
(Soundbite of kora)
SEABROOK: Polish up your glass harmonica.
(Soundbite of glass harmonica)
SEABROOK: Or go down to the basement and dig out your stalactite organ.
(Soundbite of stalactite organ)
SEABROOK: That's some basement you got there. We're looking for the most unusual musical instruments you've got, and we want to hear you play them.
(Soundbite of keytar)
SEABROOK: OK, maybe not the keytar. Record yourself however you can, and e-mail it to us. Send your masterpiece to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, that's email@example.com. Or record it on our Homework hotline at 202-408-5183.
SEABROOK: Next week, we'll play as many shomisons (ph), crumhorns, and clay(ph) marimbas as our delicate ears can handle.
