When I think of mountain dulcimer I keep picturing the assassins in the movie Kung Fu Hassle. They were very deadly and very powerful. It was very unique that their instrument of trade is the mountain dulcimer. And the way they sit with one leg crossed to cradle the instrument, as if sitting on an invisible chair, is very sinister. Although they are the villains it didn’t change my mind about the mountain dulcimer at all. For during the time the assassins were attacking they produce a different yet beautiful kind of music that only this the mountain dulcimer can make.
