Roman Kumlyk from Ukraine Plays Tiny Violin Roman Kumlyk from Verkhovyna, Ivano-Frankivsk oblast', western Ukraine, plays mountain music of Ukrainian Carpathians on a tiny violin. Roman is an owner and a guide of his private Museum of Musical Instruments and Hutsuls Lifestyle. He told us, the visitors of his Museum, a story that such little violins were made in Carpathian Mountains for kids to learn how to play a violin. I took this video in my trip to Ukraine in 2011
