Sarangi

 

 

 

The Sarangi is a bowed, short-necked lute of the Indian subcontinent. It is an important bowed string instrument of India´s Hindustani classical music tradition. Of all Indian instruments, it is said to most resemble the sound of the human voice, able to imitate vocal ornaments such as gamaks and meend. It is also said to be the hardest instrument to master.

The word Sarangi is derived from two Hindi words: sau (meaning “hundred”) and rang ( meaning “color”). This is because the sound of the sarangi is said to be as expressive and evocative as a hundred colors.
