Uyghur musical instruments

When we talk about musical instruments, we must talk about the musical heritage of the people, because everything is interconnected. Say, let’s take the mukam, the beginning of the mukam is always played on the sattar, which means that somehow the sattar appeared thanks to the mukam, because we needed such an instrument with such a sound, not like the others.

Sattar is a bow instrument used mainly at the beginning of mukam /it comes from Farsi - si means  three - si three strings –sitar.
