Did You Know?
The musical instrument heard in the opening credits and through much of the soundtrack is a hurdy gurdy. The hurdy gurdy is bowed stringed instrument, like a violin, but the bow is a rosined wooden wheel that is turned by a crank. There can be anywhere from three to six strings with some of the strings acting as drone strings. That is what makes the buzzing sound. The hurdy gurdy dates as far back as the Middle Ages. See more
