5/27.- Holland, Pierement


A typical Dutch instrument, frequently seen in the streets, is the large and lavishly decorated barrel organ, known by the name of “pierement”. Some of them are still hand-operated, but most often nowadays there will be a small motor to do the hard work. The barrel organ plays a sequence of popular tunes, while the operators follow the rhythm by shaking their collection boxes, in which passers-by deposit some small change.
