The Bouzouki

A very common traditional musical instrument in my country is the bouzouki. It is a string instrument that you can play by striking or plucking its strings. It has 6 to 8 strings and at the top of it there are keys with which you tune them. The name bouzouki comes from the Turkish word ‘bozuk‘, meaning ‘broken‘ or ‘modified‘. The bouzoukis vary as to not only the number of strings but also as to other features, like neck length, width, height, main body e.t.c. In almost every single Greek village you will find a lot of bouzouki players. There are, also, many festivals where tourists can enjoy bouzouki music. Come visit our country, don’t miss the exciting events and have lots of fun!!!
