Folk Lute - Morocco

Purchased in Marrakech, Morocco, 1967

From Graciela's Notes

The instrument is strummed and is a native type of guitar. The body is made of leather and the fingerboard is decorated with brass bands. The three strings are made of silk thread and are strummed lightly when played. I purchased it during one of the several trips I made to Marrakech, Morocco while I was living in Spain. This instrument was bought at the Bazaar in Marrakech, Morocco in December 1967.
