Antique Chinese stringed bowed instrument Erhu

Walking the next day through the streets of Shenzhen City, looking at interesting photographs, moments from the life of the city, I saw how several aged men were playing some unknown instrument. Then I asked them what it was and how to play it and they told me the story of this interesting instrument called Erhu. Erhu (Chinese 二胡) — an ancient Chinese stringed bowed instrument, an original two-stringed violin with metal strings. They impressed me with their game and allowed me to take a couple of photos. Here I am sharing with you.Shenzhen city / September 2021
