    I like drums too...

    But my all time favourite musical instrument is probably the violin.

    I also love all kind of folkloric musical instruments... My favourite one from my homeland is the "bucium":

    The bucium Is A Type Of Alphorn Of Dacian Origin Used By Mountain Dwellers In Romania.

    Maybe because of poetry and folklore... but also because of their uniqueness. "Bucium" has a very unique and quite transcendental sound.

    From Germanic countries, I think I like the most the Hardanger violin from Norway (violin + folklore = Hardanger fiddle).

    Generally speaking, I love music that makes good use of folkloric instruments... from black metal (some certain bands, for example some albums of the Romanian black metal band Negură Bunget) to folk rock and folklore...

    (from a Negură Bunget concert... with "bucium")

    I appreciate each piece of good music that makes good use of folkloric instruments.

    I also appreciate Tibetan bowls for their healing properties (if they are good calibrated, though).

    I should say piano/grand piano as I have played that or guitar as I'm learning to play guitar right now.

    But I like/value these 2 folk instruments a lot:

    From Sweden: Nyckelharpa





    From Finland: Kantele.

    Police suspect German father and daughter found dead in Paraguay were killed for Stradivarius violins


    German father and daughter found dead in Paraguay were killed for Stradivarius violins





    Bernard Raymond von Bredow.


    Police in Paraguay have detained two Germans and a Chilean suspected of killing a German man and his daughter while trying to get documents proving the authenticity of valuable violins.


    Bernard Raymond von Bredow, a museum owner and instrument maker, was killed along with his 14-year-old daughter Lydia last month at their home in Aregua, east of the Paraguayan capital, last month, and police said von Bredow's body showed signs of torture. Police Commissioner Hugo Grance said four violins believed to have been made by revered Italian luthier Antonio Stradivari were found in the possession of Volker Grannass, a 58-year-old German who lived near the von Bredow residence. Also arrested were Yves Asriel Spartacus Steinmetz (60) and Chilean Stephen Jorg Messing Darchinger (51). None had been formally charged yet, however, said prosecutor Lorena Ledesma.


    Grance said that von Bredow apparently had left the violins with Grannas during a trip to Germany, and was told when he returned that they had been destroyed in a fire. “Our principal hypothesis is that the motive for the double crime was to find the international certification of authenticity of the violins so they could be sold," he said.
    Prosecutor Lorena Ledesma, one of the agents assigned to the case, said officials were seeking further evidence because they suspect more people were involved.


    Violins crafted by Stradivari in the 17th and 18th centuries can sell for millions.


    Von Bredow gained notice as a teenager when he discovered the complete skeleton of a mammoth near his hometown of Siegsdorf in Bavaria. He later founded a museum on mammoths and also pursued work in biology, geology and other fields, according to the biography on his museum's website. Neighbors in Aregua said von Bredow had settled in the town two years ago and dedicated himself to making violins.


    Grance said last week that the von Bredow house "was found in complete disarray and blood stains indicated that the Germans were probably killed elsewhere on the property.” “The man had traces of having been tortured,” Grance added. The officer said the evidence at the scene indicates “that two or more individuals sought something” inside the house.
