Memories, and Ellis Island

Wassily Kadinsky is know to have said, “Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

This lovely instrument is in the museum at Ellis Island, it is among the possessions that the immigrants brought with them to their new home.  The music played touched the soul of those who could hear it, bringing back memories of home, family and happy times, and celebrations.  Wondering through the museum at Ellis Island and seeing the items left behind or donated, viewing the  photos, listening to the stories, my soul was touched.

I would like to know the name of the instrument, if you can help me out I would like to hear from you.
