Persian Origin but Multi Cultural Reach
A Persian bowed string instrument, the Kamancheh is a part of not only Persian, but also Azerbaijani, Armenian, and Kurdish music.
A relative to the rebab, the Kamancheh holds the same powerful enigma of transcendence and perfection that is so often seen in Persian musical instruments.
