Where does the oud originate from?
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:14:53 AM »
I was just wondering, is the oud an arab instrument or an agyptian one? Or does it originate from somewhere else?


smile all the time!

There are many legends that revolve around the oud :)
First of all, take a look at this short article:  http://www.arabinstruments.com/the-origin-of-the-oud
It explains a thing or two :) And then, go to wikipedia, just prepare yourself for a long read first :D

I think the history of the oud is very interesting. I don't know where it really originates from, but I do know it has been mentioned starting with the biblical times! So, it really does have a long, interesting history!
Ouds are the real ancestors of modern guitars!
