Barbat For Kids

The oud, referred to as barbat in Iran, is a string instrument of the lute family. It has a large, pear-shaped wooden resonator and a very short neck with five pairs of strings. The instrument creates a warm and inviting sound, and has the lowest pitch of all the traditional Iranian strings. The barbat is played while seated. The player strums the strings using a pick held in their right hand. The left hand moves along the neck and changes the pitch.

Learn more about the Barbat

The barbat (Persian: بربط‎) or barbud was a lute of Central Asian or Greater Iranian or Persian origin. The barbat was an important instrument of the Ghassanids in pre-Islamic times and of the Syrians in early Islamic times. It was characterized as carved from a single piece of wood, including the neck and a wooden sound board. It would be ancestral to the wood-topped oud, pipa and biwa and the skin-topped Yemeni qanbus.
