Throughout human history, musicians have tried to push the boundary of sounds and music by inventing newer and innovative ways of creating music.

This day aims to encourage people to not only learn to play some of these uncommon instruments but also to make their own contributions to the world of music by making their own musical instruments.

How to Celebrate?

  • Learn about uncommon instruments. Some examples include the Xaphoon, Daxophone, and Bowfrideaphone.
  • Start learning how to play an uncommon musical instrument.

Did You Know…

…that the earliest recorded music instruments are about 42,000 years old? Found in a cave in Germany, these flutes were made of bird bones and mammoth ivory.
