I was walking past a musical instrument shop and saw this wonderful instrument called Gogona which I often wondered but never tried. Gogona is a type of Jew's harp, a vibrating reed instrument that is used primarily in the traditional Bihu music in Assam. Gogona is an integral part of Bihu and it gives an extra flaovour to Bihu. Gogona or Jew's Harp or Jaw Harp is a simple musical instrument but whoever designed it was a genius. It is found in different parts of the world, so its origin is unknown. Or, perhaps it was developed simultaneously in different parts of the world. The easiest way to learn is to silently pronounce A-E-I-O-U while we give slight pushes to the right end. Now, you can play the instrument according to the beats of the music. Improvisations are your contribution.
