Sounds like a little harp

The lyre is an easy to play string instrument in diatonic or pentatonic scale. It sounds like a little harp with a tender and quiet sound.
The lyre is made of an oval frame. The bottom is a closed soundbox and the top is an open playing surface. You play it while holding it in your arm.


Like most of our instruments the lyre is also suited for improvising and discovering your own melodies.

Just like the kalimba, it can be used to accompany stories.
