Melodica

Manufacturer / Developer

The brand Hohner is considered to be the "inventor" of the Melodica.
The combination of a Wind and Keyboard Instrument is usually thought to be made for children, even though bands like UB40 used it in their music.

Function

The keyboard element of the Melodica defines the airflow to create the sound. Unlike the mouthorgan, the Melodica creates a tune only by blowing air into the instrument and not by inhaling.

On stage

Jonsu plays the Melodica live in the song Valoissa.
