DVD - "TRADITIONAL PARAGUAYAN HARPMAKING w/GERONIMO MORINIGO"
John Kovac Harps by Davy C
The must-have traditional Paraguayan harping video of the late, great Geronimo Morinigo. Filmed on location by John Kovac at John's own mountain harp-making shop in the Shenandoah National Forest, Virginia, USA.
This is not an instructional video for any of our harp kits. Rather it is an inspirational maker's video of a professional Paraguayan harp maker, of which we DIY harp makers are a part of a long line of superb traditions. John Kovac based his own Paraguayan-styled harp creations on these harps, as demonstrated in the video.
Watch & listen as Geronimo takes you through the entire process, 95% by free-hand and from memory (except for the neck/harmonic curve template he keeps with him), while John narrates for us; Geronimo only speaks Spanish. But, his immense talent & music is not limited by his lack of English!
If you want to know the secrets to the great sound & ultra-lightweight harps of Paraguay and how you might make your own based on the founding principles of the Paraguayan harp tradition, get this DVD!
This is a legacy video disc, in DVD format, which may have a plain paper sleeve instead of a jewel case with a commercial media sleeve.
Also, see our DVD where Geronimo teaches you harp playing in his own methods of practice.
