Description

Classic khomus from the collection "Yakutian Khomus".

The Yakutian khomus is an ancient musical instrument of the peoples of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), which is more than 5 thousand years old. It is distinguished by a characteristic "space" sound: since ancient times it was considered an instrument of the Yakut shamans. In Yakutia, it is not just a tool, but a real symbol of the national culture of the Sakha people. Local craftsmen have carried the secrets of making sonorous, colorful khomuses through the centuries. Despite its small size, it can produce mesmerizing sounds that mimic the sounds of nature.

The Yakutian khomus is a shamanic instrument. In their rituals, shamans mainly used instruments with a low, rolling sound. It was believed that the sound of the Yakut musical instrument khomus is woven from space vibrations and is an instrument that connects a person with the upper world.
