Erhu playing

Erhu (二胡) is a Chinese two-stringed bowed musical instrument, which may be also called “Chinese violin“. Its origin dates back to Chinese Tang dynasty (7th – 10th century). The erhu consists of a long vertical stick-like wooden neck with two strings, at the bottom is a small resonator body (covered with snake skin), and the bow. The erhu is being played while sitting.
