GhostCatcherDesigned7
Ghost Catcher (stringed) is a traditional instrument of Kuzhebar people
(South Siberia). It is a kind of mouth bow, but unlike other mouth bows
it has little fingerboard and 2 strings, so it is possible to play melodies
on it strumming the strings by right hand, and pressing the strings to the fingerboard by left hand. It is also possible to play on it with a stick, this technique reminds the berimbao playing. The instrument should be placed in front of the mouth and modulated like a jaw harp.

This model of the Ghost Catcher is covered with symbols believed to be
a protection by hunting the ghosts on two sides of the instrument
and presenting a mosquito on its third side.

Premiere of the performance "Stolen Voice" at the festival KAMWA 2014 (Perm)

Premiere of the performance "Stolen Voice" will take part at the 6th of September at the International Ethnofuturistic festival "KAMWA" in Perm.
This project of Julia Surba presents her passion for synthesis of arts. It includes the freedom of performance, mystery of shadow theater, unique costumes and live music. The choice of the background music is also very interesting. There are traditional tunes from different parts of the world: Kazakhstan, Tibet, Amazonia etc. These tunes help to develop the main charackters of the performance: Lord of Thunder, Sky Sisters and Yysh Aa – a braveheart, who volunteered for help the younger Sky Sister being equipped just with his gumption, purity of his intention and magical sounds of his musical instruments.
The premiere performance will be presented by Synthesism Theater Mimikria starring Nadishana as Yysh Aa and David Kuckhermann as Master of Thunder
