Hear a Qanun

Recommended Posts

Depending on where you have lived, you may not have heard a qanun up to now... The kind of zither is common from Armenia and Turkey to Iran and Syria and beyond.

Music on Youtube:
NplUDKSwvQU, "The Seven Gates of Damascus"
xL1QRZ1nfro "Syrian Dreams"
e351z9H5MB8 audition for a graduation
Allegedly the instrument was formerly played by men only... Maya Youssef is a fabulous composer, and to my untrained ear she plays very well too.

Explanations about the instrument:
h81283r_cJ8 including the piece "Breakthrough"
