Upright Violin?

Post by Haroon » Tue Jun 21, 2016 7:27 am

Hi,

Has the violin ever been played vertically (scroll up, like the cello) in Hindustani or Carnatic sangeet? Coming from a sarangi/saringda culture, would it not have made sense to hold the violin like this?

BTW, the Moroccan violin is played vertically, have a look:
