What instrument is this, something stringed?


Simple question, that is bugging me. I love this sound of this stringed instrument, but I have no idea what it is?


At 1:10.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a harp, but not a full-size concert harp. The sound is similar to 12-string, or other instruments related to the guitar, but there is a low note at 1m16s which has such resonance it could only really be played on a harp.

I'd think most likely a Celtic harp.

Could also be a small harp from another folk tradition, Andean harp, Jarocho harp, but there are differences to the sound which make them less likely.
