Amoura installation

Possibly the largest hurdy-gurdy in the world, the Amoura is an instrument of such absurd dimensions that it is possible to seat a dozen people inside it. During the Big Bang festival, we invite kids and adults to a sensory and creative experience, playing inside and outside of this giant instrument. The hurdy-gurdy is a stringed instrument of Celtic-Galician origin whose sound is created by strings fractioned by a crank-operated wheel, and the melody being produced through a keyboard.
