A stringed musical instrument from India played with a bow and known as a sarinda. This one was made in the 19th century and is constructed from a single piece of teak wood. The large hollows on either side enable the player to move the bow across the strings. The sarinda is played by men to accompany singers and is also used today by street musicians.
