Sallaneh (lute)


Sallaneh (lute)

The sallaneh (سلانه) is a newly developed plucked string instrument made under the supervision of the Iranian musician Hossein Alizadeh, and constructed by Siamak Afshari. It is inspired by the ancient Persian lute called "barbat". The "barbat" used to have three strings but Sallaneh has six melody and six harmonic strings giving Alizadeh a new realm in lower tones.1
