Trân Quang Hai thinks about Sylvain Trias :

“Sylvain TRIAS was my student at the beginning and has become my good friend since . He is a virtuoso of Jew’s harp, mastering different styles from Norway, Rajasthan, Vietnam. Furthermore, he has mastered the technique of overtone singing. He obtained the master degree in Norway with the topic “Helmholtz and Coupled Resonator Acoustics in Jew’s Harp Playing”. This video presents his general research on overtone singing and jew’s harps” .
