month we'll ask a trivia question; email your
answer, name, and address with the subject "April
Trivia" to SmithsonianFolkways_at_si_dot_edu
by May 1st, and a randomly selected entrant with the correct
answer will win a free CD of his or her choice!
April Question: The tar, a plucked lute
featured on the Music of Central
Asia, Vol. 8, is widely considered the
national instrument of what country?
Congratulations to last month's winner, Joanne,
from Santa Rosa, CA, who was randomly selected after
correctly answering "Afghanistan" to March's question: The
rubāb, a lute-like instrument with a mixture of melody, drone,
and sympathetic strings, is featured in the music from this
Central Asian country? Hint Homayun Sakhi plays rubāb on
three volumes of the Music of Central
Folkways is a nonprofit endeavor, and CD and digital download
purchases sustain both the mission and the music. Liner notes are
available as free downloads. Thank you for your support.
