Anglo Concertina and Diatonic Harmonica


Recommended Posts

Check this man plays multiple harmonicas at same time, in somewhat harmonic style: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1qi4y1c7P7?spm_id_from=333.999.0.0

I think that's almost how an Anglo Concertina works. The difference is that seems impossible to play note from different harmonicas(for anglo from different rows,) to accomplish a chord.

Playing with two (or more) tremolo-tuned harmonicas, in keys a semitone apart (thus making the combination of the two diatonic diatonic instruments into a chromatic one - like a B/C, C/C#, or B/C button accordion) seems to be quite the style in the Far East, and the Japanese Tombo firm (the manufacturers of the instruments played in the video) facilitates this by offering tremolo harmonicas in every key possible.

 

Here's another video of the same player, performing The Blue Danube, on various combinations of harmonicas:

I think he's probably sometimes changing harmonica to get the accompanying chord he wants at that given moment, rather than for melodic reasons.
