Balalaikas-History

Posted by Eric Azumi on

The exact origins of the balalaika are unknown.
However, it is commonly agreed that it descended from the domra, an instrument from the Caucasus region of Russia. There is also similarity to the Kazakh dombra, which has 2 strings, and the Mongolian topshur.
