Google Doodle Celebrates Accordion: Know Its Origin & Significance 

| Updated: May 23, 2024 13:58

Google Doodle on Thursday highlights the accordion, a musical instrument distinguished by its cheerful sound and characteristic bellows.

The anniversary of the accordion’s 1829 patent is celebrated with this delightful animated Doodle. The word “accordion” is derived from the German word “akkord,” which means “chord,” and refers to the ability of the instrument to make melodic notes.

In the late 19th century, the accordion became more popular throughout Europe, especially among folk artists. Initial models had buttons on one side that played full chords. Fascinatingly, depending on whether the bellows were being pulled or pushed, each button could generate two distinct chords.

The accordion’s distinctive sound travelled to different parts as European immigrants had carried it with them. There are several styles of accordions nowadays. While some have piano-style keyboards, others have buttons. Some even combine the two types. Electronic components are now a common feature of accordions, enabling sound synthesis and amplification.

Due to its versatility, the accordion can be played in a wide range of musical styles. It can be found in the vibrant tunes of Cajun music, the rousing rhythms of the tango, and the joyful polka of Latino music. Its unique tone gives every style something special.

The accordion’s continuing contribution to music is highlighted in the Google Doodle in its celebration. The accordion has become popular across the world from its European origins and still makes music lovers delighted. Whether used in folk, classical, or contemporary music, the accordion is still a beloved instrument by many.
