In 2008, pieces of a 1500 year old stringed instrument made from wood and carved goat horn were found in a cave in the Altai mountains in Mongolia by someone chasing a lost sheep.

After several years of study and experimentation, Mongolian ethnomusicologist Ganpurev Dagvan has recreated the instrument. He is currently on a world tour with a folk music band to introduce the goat-horn harp to the world.
