The main parts of this site are going around some of the oldest majesties of the plucked string instruments like the RUDRA VINA (BIN)of North- & the SARASWATI VINA of South India, the slide- opposites : The VICHITRA VINA & CHITRA VINA (GOTTUVADYAM), The North Indian Lute SAROD and the Arabic OUD. There are many other Links to sites about Classical Oriental and Asian Music to see these instruments inside their cultural traditions. When the author started this discovery many years ago, a great portal was opened.
