The beautiful instrument is made up of a gourd resonating body, a long neck on which 21 to 23 strings resonate. It seems to have been around after the collapse of the Moghal Empire and is an instrument commonly played in North India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Most famously played by Pandit Ravi Shanker, who then taught it to the Beetles in the sixties.
