During the 1800s, various Western stringed instruments came to Burma by means of traders, explorers, and colonizers. These instruments – the acoustic slide guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, and zither – were quickly and ingeniously adapted to the intricacies of Burmese music. The music draws from Burma’s rich vocal tradition, and the centuries-old royal repertoire of the Burmese harp and xylophone. Recorded and produced by Rick Heizman.
