Sitar Music Instrument Anime Drawing

Today, I made a nice anime drawing featuring the Sitar instrument. It is a Hindu classical music instrument.

It evolved from the tanbur music instruments. It gained popularity during the early reign Mughal Empire (1526-1707). This instrument was often played in the court.

It was used in Persian and Hindu melodies. Overtime, it gained its modern shape. The tuning of the instrument varies from school to school.

It gained modern popularity thanks to the Beatles. It still gets played outside of India, in World Music.

The Sitar is synonymous with 60s music, with hundreds of rock bands making use of the instrument.

I hope you find amusing learning about this lovely instrument. This is Teresita Blanco, the Artsy Sister. Bye, Bye, God bless.
