Bouzouki

The bouzouki or bouzoukia is a long-necked musical instrument of Greek origin, resembling a mandolin, which exists in three flavours:

  • Trichordo having three pairs of strings.
  • Tetrachordo having four pairs of strings.
  • Irish.

The Greek trichordo bouzouki, and its relative the baglamas, were the main instruments of rembetika[?] (a type of Greek music). [1] (http://www.blackmore7.fsnet.co.uk/Bouzouki_and_Baglamas/bouzouki_and_baglamas)
