(Redirected from Molossaphone Day)Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Molossaphone is a mirliton Molossian instrument that is similar to a kazoo. The national instrument of Molossia, it is played by vocalising into it which adds a buzzing timbral quality to the player's voice. A woodwind instrument, the Molossaphone is a membranophone. It is played at ceremonial occasions in the micronation.
It was adopted as the national instrument of the Republic of Molossia in 2007, after President Kevin Baugh noted that the then-national instrument, wine chimes, could not be played by humans. Thus, the kazoo was renamed the Molossaphone and selected as the new national instrument of Molossia. 28 January is observed annually as Molossaphone Day.
