Exotism and Populism: Hopes and dangers

Raising interest: The K’ny
The “K’ny” is a very intersting, fascinating instrument. Looking like a normal fiddle, it covers an idea which is as intelligent as it is simple:
of cultural traditions in Asia. It stands for the most important question for everyone who is engaged in the preservation of a cultural tradition: How do we survive?
Is it right, that instruments like the K’ny just simply survive because they are so “outstanding” that it is used as a good argument? Or is this the only chance for an instrument like the K’ny to survive the next generations? Or is it even a chance to create so much interest in the K’ny that people and kids start learning again, and an old playing tradition comes back to life?
