It's another now-traditional "Not accordion" Noir episode, and we've chosen the magnificent Jaw Harp / Jew's Harp / Nobody knows why it's called that Harp, and it's going to be fun!

We've got (whatever it's called) harp-music from all over the world, occasionally with other odd-ball instruments like accordions.
