The Harmonium is a free-reed aerophone, widely used in India. The harmonium is played often as an accompanying instrument in ensembles like chant (mantra, folk music, bhajans) and for Hindusthani classical singers. Instrumentalists also use it as a solo instrument. Because of it’s loud and mellow sound it is played in any intimate set up where music or dance is performed acoustically. The Harmonium sounds similar to an accordion or a small organ. A player uses both hands; one to pump the air pressure and the other for playing the keys similar to the piano or an accordion.
