My entry for MusicalinstrumentFriday :
- " Ranard Ake ", a Thai classica music instrument. It belongs to my 16-year-old son who plays and teaches it as a part-time job.
** Here's a short video clip of my son practicing it when he learnt it for around 6 months : http://www.youtube.com/PouletSA#p/u/12/7Kn3036RWMA

Thanks, dear Nancy!
That's my "Ruay-suk", the youngest son's bark! LOL
I think that he loves to hear the sound of every instruments. Everytime my son played ranard, guitar or another musical instruments Ruay-suk always laid down by my son, sighed and did not pay attention to any other thing. :)

Fantastic entry!
It reminds me that a long time ago we bought for our children such an instrument designed by Rudolf Steiner (the famous antroposofist). At the time we thought the instrument too beautiful for our children to play on it so we exposed it on the wall in our living room so that everone could "enjoy" it. It is not anymore on the wall and now our grandchildren are really enjoying to play on it!

Oh Senna, we made some mistakes as parents that's for sure, lucky you can now all enjoy it with your grandchildren... wisdom really comes with the years. :-)

Poulet this is awesome, me and my husband enjoyed your sons playing, Bats eating bananas... coming from a tropical background I know how those bats behave..:-)
I am glad I found your youtube page, will go back there later when I have
some idol minutes...:-)I saw your little niece and her parents. :-)

Thank you Peter. :))
This Ranard is quite a common one but you'll see many majestic looked Ranard in the Thai Classical band.
Feb 27 2010 03:28 GMT Poulet PRO
Thank you very much, dear Pat! :)
Feb 27 2010 03:30 GMT Poulet PRO
I didn't play it, Martijn. It's too complicated for me! lol
Thai cassical instruments have no music note. We have to listen to the sound and remember it!!!

Very beautiful photographed (angle, light) and the video I like a lot too (though the dog didn't like it I think ;))
Feb 27 2010 17:59 GMT qpidoremix
thats how i play most instruments :o) I never play from paper.
The curacao balofon cant be tuned either. Just like the Ranard, once its built the tones are as is.
Feb 28 2010 04:07 GMT Poulet PRO
Thank you Nikonone.
BTW, the dog likes it. (LOL) He always laid down by my son every time he praticing it. :)
Feb 28 2010 04:09 GMT Poulet PRO
So cool, Martijn!!
When I was young I used to play piano and it is a must for me to have note sheets and right now I'm in a chorus group and I have note sheets too. :) lol
