Squeezebox

Squeezebox

[skweez-boks]

The term Squeezebox (also Squeeze box, Squeeze-box) is a colloquial expression referring to any musical instrument of the general class of hand-held bellows-driven free reed aerophones such as the accordion or concertina, including the Indian version of the Harmonium, a small, portable, hand-held instrument often used in South Asian and Middle Eastern music. The term is so applied because such instruments are generally in the shape of a rectangular prism or box, and the bellows is operated by squeezing in and drawing out.
