Google Doodle honors German instrument-"accordion"!!!

Known as a folk musician's "main squeeze," the google Doodle honored the German musical instrument known as the "accordion" on Thursday. It was patented on this day in 1829. This bellows-equipped free-reed instrument has impacted pop, jazz, folk, and classical music, among other genres. The German word akkord (chord) is where the name "accordion" originates, as google Doodle has pointed out. The accordion is one of the bellows-equipped free-reed instruments that was developed in the early 1800s, along with the concertina, bandoneon, and harmonium.

The "Google" logo was incorporated into the accordion's bellows in the Doodle's musical theme, which showed musicians playing the instrument with dancers wearing traditional German garb. google Doodles are short-lived updates to the google logo designed to honor national and international festivals, important anniversaries, and prominent figures who have made important contributions to society.

Here is additional information regarding the accordion: 

An accordion is a portable free-reed musical instrument having a bass section usually with buttons and a treble section with piano-style keys or buttons. These parts are attached to the opposing sides of a bellows that is manipulated manually. The explanation provided by google Doodle states that German accordion producers increased their output in the late 1800s in response to the growing demand from european folk musicians.

- Originally, accordions had buttons on one side, each of which could produce a whole chord. These buttons produced two distinct chords according on whether the bellows were drawn or pressed. The accordion became more widely used in many musical genres as a result of the migration of european immigrants throughout the world. Modern accordions come with either a piano keyboard or buttons; some even come with both.
