Tanbour

Tanbour is one of the oldest string instruments in the world dating back to some 5000 years ago. It is a 3-string lute and is considered to be the predecessor of many present day string instruments including guitar. In the Iranian Kurdistan Tanbour is regarded as a sacred instrument and until two decades ago it was just performed by the Sufis in the sufi processions
