Woodstock Chimes WBM The Original Guaranteed Musically Tuned Chime Hanging Bells, Morroco
Our Bells of Morocco combine a pleasing spiral design with enchanting tones that work together to bring home a bit of the mystery and allure of Marrakesh, also known as the “Ochre city”. Morocco has embraced and blended a large number of influences over the centuries. Today, many ancient arts and traditions can be experienced in Marrakesh, a city which has the largest traditional market in Morocco and one of the busiest squares in Africa. The square bustles with story-tellers, water sellers, dancers, musicians and the sound of bells. Woodstock Bells of Morocco may call you back to a day at a sun drenched beach, a bazaar filled with rich colors and exotic spices, or an auspicious meeting at the kasbah.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.
