Mouth Harps from Nepal

In Nepal, Mouth Harps are called Morchunga.

Morchunga is a traditional folk instrument in Nepal, and can be found in various regions of the himalayan range. These Mouth Harps are often small and light, and the tongues of this instrument are sometimes made from the spring steel of recycled umbrella spines. Made mainly of forged Iron, brass, copper or nickel silver, or even cast in bronze, these Morchungas are pretty and popular, and sound happy and bouncy when played.

Two of the Morchunga makers in the World Harps Collection are produced by cousins.
Bupendra, a farmer who is kept very busy tending to his cows and caring for his family, lives close to the Chinese border of Tibet. He makes Morchunga when he finds the time, and he is quite skilled achieving great consistency in his instruments’ quality of sound.

Bhupendra’s cousin Inok lives in a rural area not far from Kathmandu, and his rudimentary workshop is in the middle of fields that are fast developing all around. Inok does not hesitate to produce as many Morchungas as needed to fill an order, but constrained by World Harps’ stringent quality screening procedure, he has proven himself to be able to make some very fine pieces. Most of Inok’s stock in the World Harps Collection has already been sold, and a diverse selection of his designs has been listed on clearance sale at the end of this page.

The third maker, Ayodhya, is innovative in his approach. His Morchungas are cast in Bronze. They are ornamentally decorated with Eagles, Om’s, Ganeshas and Lizards, and the tongues are set into place with solder. They sound good, they are attractive, and they make lovely gifts.
