identify this instrument/musician?

Post by chrisitar » Thu May 08, 2014 6:35 pm

Anyone recognize this? Its from the Darbar festival youtube channel intro, it looks like a sursringar,but different than any i've seen. The fret plate is wood, the body looks like skin, the head is totally unique. Pt Joydeep Ghosh is the only sursringar player i know of and it doesn't look like him. Any guesses?

I think that may be a Hindustani rabab it looks to have gut strings, there may another name for it as well

You're right! It is a hindustani rabab or dhrupad rabab. what I don't understand is the lack of chikari and the presence of many strings that appear to have the same size.
