The accordina is a French wind and free reed instrument invented and originally built in Paris by A.Borel around 1950-1960.
It combines the sound of chromatic harmonica with the logical and comfortable keyboard of button accordion (Italian system).
The instrument had little success among musicians when it was made, the accordion being more suitable for the music played at that time. Nowadays however musicians, especially jazz accordion players appreciate it more and more for the great expressive possibilities.
This wonderful modern example is made in France by master maker Joseph Carrel.
Available in both B and C system you can blow through the side mouth piece. The option of a hose and mounting points allows you to wear the accordina on a strap.
