Handmade Traditional Xinjiang Uyghur Ghijek / Violin

The word tambur comes from the Arabic ‘tunbur’, and it is widely believed that this comes from the Sumerian word ‘pantur’, a semispherical stringed instrument with a long stem. Another view is that it comes from the words (tabla, tabl, tabul etc.) for percussion instruments that have been used since the very earliest times. There is mention in the Hittite civilization of a stringed instrument called a ‘TIBULA’. It is generally agreed that this was in all probability a long-stemmed stringed instrument. Texts from those times reveal that it was used to accompany the spoken word and dancing.
