The Burmese Harp shows the modal structure of the music to be directly related to the notes of the harp tunings and to the elements of the mouth-music tradition. It is primarily the relative importance of the modes which characterizes songs in each division. The arched harp was traditionally the most prized instrument of the Burmese royal court and it probably is the only ancient arched harp tradition still alive today.
