The accordina is a French wind and free reed instrument invented and built in Paris by A.Borel around 1950-1960. Itcombines the sound of chromatic harmonica with the logical and comfortable keyboard of button accordion (Italiansystem).
The instrument had little success among musicians when it was made, the accordion being more suitable for the musicplayed at that time. Nowadays however musicians, especially jazz accordion players appreciate it more and more for the greatexpressive possibilities.
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.
