unbelievably exciting bowed Afghan instrument, I'm
playing with cello bow, single and double stopping,
using sitar strings, remembering, trying not to
rush the rhythm.

*hard to pinpoint what this instrument is, somewhere
among suroz, sarinda, and ghichak; there's only one
image of a similar thing online in a museum - I
can't locate it again - it was just called an Afghan
chordophone. mine seems a century old at the least;
I had repairs to do.
