Pekka Lamberg playing Jouhikko 1907 The jouhikko is an ancient, 2-4 stringed Finnish bowed lyre, also called jouhikannel (see kantele). Its strings are traditionally of horsehair, though some modern instruments are made with carbon fibre, nylon, gut or even metal viola strings.

Kantele is national instrument of Finland and it's been knwon here at least 1000 years. The oldest forms of kantele have 5 or 6 horsehair strings and a wooden body carved from one piece; more modern instruments have metal strings and often a body made from several pieces. Modern concert kanteles can have up to 40 strings. Sound example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNz4zJobg58&feature=fvw How to play:
