History Of Guimbarde Museum
December 15, 2015 02:37


The museum was created at the initiative of the prominent Yakut guimbarde player Ivan Egorovich Alekseev. The first exhibits were to be the instruments of his personal collection - about two dozen jew’s harps.

The authorities of the Republic of Sakha appreciated his idea, and the Museum and the Centre of Guimbardes of Nations were opened in Yakutsk on November 30, 1990. In 2009 the museum received a royal gift from the famous American explorer Frederick Crane: more than five hundred guimbardes collected from around the world. In 2011 the Seventh International Congress of Guimbarde Music was held in Yakutsk. The event would have remained unnoticed but for the massive session of guimbarde playing.

1344 people played in a large ensemble, the concert was entered into Guinness World Records Book. It was possible to gather a larger number of people, but according to the rules, only an indoor concert counts. The Hall of Sakha Circus meant for up to 800 people was filled to its capacity. The next day the same melody was played again at the Yakut Ysyakh festival, and there were twice as many musicians. Not for the record, but for the soul.
