The Magical Rebab of Amir Hamza

The rebab is part of the lute family of instruments. It originated in Afghanistan around the 8th century or earlier. Here the plucked rebab is masterfully demonstrated by Amir Hamza who is also from those parts. Some versions are played with a bow. Variations are used in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Morocco, Turkey and Indonesia.
