The arched harp, traditionally the most prized instrument of the Burmese royal court, may be the only harp tradition still alive today in Burma (Myanmar). Williamson, the leading Western authority on the Burmese harp and its music, explores the history of the instrument and the connection of its music to the harp's oral teaching tradition.
