A dan moi is a type of Jews harp originating from Vietnam. Most dan moi are crafted out of a single piece of brass and attached with a string to a decorated bamboo case. Rather than being played against the teeth, like most Jews harps are, the dan moi is played against the lips and uses the oral cavity as a resonance chamber. This gives much more flexibility to player. It is a popular instrument of the mountainous people in the north of Vietnam. It is belong to Hmong culture.
