Ethnic Stringed Instruments

As you explore our pages containing beautiful stringed instruments from around the world, you'll find instruments represented from the countries surrounding the region of the Middle East. Hand-crafted, unique instruments from exotic places such as Turkey, Egypt, and North Africa. A few of these are, the oud, rabab, lavta, saz, dotar and the cumbus. The rich tradtion and culture from India have given us the sitar and tanpura, while Greek culture have provided us with the baglama saz and lyre harp. Music Urchin also has some outstanding reproductions of biblical stringed instruments such as the kinnor harp, (also known as King David's Harp) and the nevel harp. Even the resurgence in popularity of the ukulele over the past several years  have opened up new avenues of enjoyment to players young and old. Until recently, the ukulele was thought of by many as a musical toy, thankfully, those days are gone and a new generation of uke enthusiasts are discovering the joy in playing this simple, yet sophisticated stringed instrument!  Enjoy yourself as your browse the Music Urchin Ethnic String Instrument pages, where you'll find exotic strings from many far away lands!
