Composante Notes The barrel organ was a popular instrument for street music in Europe and America from the 18th through the early 20th centuries. A handle on the side was cranked by hand, turning the barrel inside the instrument. The barrel was covered with pins that hit keys, opening valves which allowed air to pass through pipes, creating the sound. The musician, known as an organ grinder, often performed with a monkey who was trained to dance to the music and retrieve money from audience members. The barrel organ, and its relative the hurdy-gurdy (a similar instrument, but with strings instead of valves) declined in appearance after WWII and the advent of transistor radios.
