New Favorite Instrument: The BulBul Tarang

Introducing the bowed BulBul Tarang. Its Hindi translation, “Waves of Nightingales” seems appropriate. Apparently it evolved from the Japanese taishogoto and arrived in India in its current incarnation in the 1930’s. It’s the perfect blend of a dulcimer, fiddle and a typewriter. Thanks Dad, for the gift!
