Oud + Biwa
« on: January 18, 2015, 11:13:19 PM »
Japanese 4 stringed instrument Biwa was born from Arabic instrument Oud when it came from China to Japan.
Now this is the very unique instrument "Oud Biwa" the hybrid of Biwa and Oud.
Body is Oud but strings are Biwa's silk ones.
Created by Japanese Oud maker Minoru Fushimi.
These Youtube videos shows you what it looks like and sounds like.
