It expresses a theme of the film, which is the movement of people. This sort of movement has been going on since the beginning of the human race — and the music of the jew's-harp, an ancient instrument, is meant to reflect that. Then people began to stay in one place and accumulate possessions, which they had to protect.
I should think that the method of keeping the khomus by a hand doesn't influence the quality of khomus sounding. It just should be comfortable for the executant itself. I also saw musicians who attached the khomus to a massive thing and played keeping the khomus for it. In this case it is not obligatory to press the khomus to your teeth. I am making an accent that ways of keeping the khomus do not influence the sound. In any case there is no much influence. The most important thing is to keep the khomus closely to teeth and nothing should bother reed vibration. Lips should clasp the cheeks.
Mouth harps are considered idiophones, instruments which vibrates to produce a sound when struck, shaken, or scraped, such as a bell, gong, or rattle. These instruments produce sound because of the elasticity and rigidity of the materials they are made from. As mentioned earlier jaw harps can be made from metals (such as copper), wood and bamboo, or bone; and each culture usually has one preferred material they use.
He formed the Phons Bakx Ensemble in the mid-'90s with other mostly Dutch musicians, including Rosildje Vermijs on accordion, Marijke Karreman on violin and guitar, Marjolen Kvaver on violin, and Iz Van Elk on didjiridoo and percussion. Bakx left the group in 1998. He was replaced by Gerald Marinus Verkerke and the group changed its name to Primrose, continuing to play its repertoire of European and North American folk music with klezmer, gypsy, and Siberian overtones. Bakx also performs from time to time with the blues group Banty Rooster and with the singing Irish brothers Robert and Jules Bitter. He also teaches at the Stedelijke Music School in Amsterdam. Bakx over-sees distribution not only for his book and recordings, but for a catalog of hard to find Jew's harp recordings from around the world and several other publications about the instrument.
