banjira Rabab with Bow

The rabab is one of the oldest and most basic of Middle Eastern stringed instruments. A rectangle wooden frame fitted with goatskin forms the resonator of this instrument. A single steel string is mounted on a long neck which is tunable by a wooden peg. To play the rabab, the player would hold the instrument on the lap vertically much like a cello and draw the bow across the single string to produce a tone. Because the hair on a bow, whether it is genuine horse hair or synthetic, rosin (refined tree sap) needs to be applied on the hair to make it sticky. Without it, the rabab, violin or cello will not produce a sound! Rosin is not included and is sold separately. Rosin is approximately $4.00 to $6.00 and can be obtained from your local music store or through Music Urchin.
