Sometimes called Harmonic Harps, wind harps originated in ancient
Greece (circa 6 BC) and flourised throughout the Renaissance
era. Aeolian Harps are rare, beautiful instruments designed
to be played by the wind; free of the touch of human
hands. Harmonic wind harps transpose the spirit of the wind into
spontaneous, multi-layered music in time to nature's
rhythms. Their vibrant voices sing pure harmonic tones
that range from deep, pulsing bases to soaring sopranos.
A variety of winds, harps, and string tunings combine
on these selected recordings to produce an eclectic
repertoire of definitive music.

Greg Joly has been
building Aeolian Harps of various sizes for over 20

Built by Greg Joly, the Grand Aeolian
Harp (pictured above left) stands 7.5' tall and is strung with forty-eight
5'2" strings. It plays a rich spectrum of powerful harmonic tones.
