New Instrumentation in Chamber Music

Are there more instruments of ethnicities outside the European tradition appearing in chamber ensembles?  I believe there are and I hope this trend continues.  While every culture is proud of its musical heritage, I hope more chamber ensembles take on the challenge of incorporating what we call 'ethnic' instruments into their repertoire.  As the world grows smaller and traditional cultures are increasingly marginalized it seems necessary to uphold the music of various cultural traditions from around the world.
