Musical Instrument Museum: Eurasia

Lute of the Tuvan People


Many of the instrument designs from all over the world were inspired by animals.


The Tuvan People


Mongolia invaded Bulgaria around 1224 so DH likes to joke that he is also Mongolian. I'm sure this has some truth to it as genetic testing of Eastern Europeans does reflect Middle Eastern and Eastern influence. Since the ancestors of people native to the Americas were also Eurasian, I like to tell DH that our ancestors got it on and that makes us inbred. Isn't humanity beautiful? ;p


The colors!
