Appenzell electro dulcimer Instrument unites traditional and techno

The hammered dulcimer, the Hackbrett, is the heart and soul of Appenzell folk music. Traditionally it's played in a string ensemble. But it's not limited to folk.

Craftsmen continue to develop the instrument, and its unique sound is being discovered by a new generation of musicians. (Michele Andina, swissinfo.ch)
