Qanun

Sale price$99.00

Qanun is an instrument that reflects the sound of the Orient like no other. Designed as a Wooden Psaltery and strung with 63 to 84 strings, it has influenced the music of the Orient since the 10th century. In any case, the first illustrations in the Syrian lexicon by Hassan Bar Bahlul are from that time. Today, the characteristic sound of the Qanun still plays an important role in traditional and modern oriental music.
