Its light string tension, combined with standard Camac lever harp spacing, lets you play the fastest Irish reel without tensing up or tiring. The fluorocarbon strings, long preferred by Early Music specialists, sound like gut yet are as practical as nylon: they are strong and hold their tuning well. The broad and panelled sound box gives a full, clear sound. The Telenn Kadiou is an ideal instrument for early and traditional music: Medieval, Celtic, Renaissance, Latin American, Baroque or Klezmer! Its name was given to it by its inspiration, Dominic Bouchad, in memory of he 'Kadiou' harper of Quimper who was in the service of Duke Hoel of Cornwall in 1069. At this time harps were already accompanying Breton lais - sung poems which are the basis of soniou and gwerziou, ongs popular to this day.
