Gusle with bow

One of the oldest instruments in Europe. It is the instrument of the Albanians, Montenegrins, Serbs, and played in parts of Croatia and Hercegovina. In the Balkans they take this form of music so seriously that they hold annual festivals in many parts of former Yugoslavia.
Songs sung with the gusle mostly depict the centuries-old struggle against the Ottoman Empire.

Consists of a wooden sound box, (maple), covered with an animal skin, and a neck with an intricately carved head. A wood bow (made of horsetail) is pulled over the string, creating a dramatic and sharp sound, expressive and difficult to master.
