Kobyz is one of the first instrument in the world, is very ancient and is the ancestor of the violin.

From the nomadic yurts of the steppe to orchestras in large concert halls, the kobyz has undertaken a long journey onto the big stage. Like many folk instruments, Kazakhstan‘s kobyz defends its right to sit among the popular classic instruments in an orchestra and has over time demonstrated its ability to adapt to any musical situation.

The Instrument of Shamans
The nomadic cultures of Central Asia are not just the birthplace of many cultures in general, but in particular of violin-like string instruments as we know them today. Among the instruments used by the nomads was the kyl kobyz, the prototype of the modern kobyz. It was carved from a single piece of wood and had two strings made of horsehair, an animal sacred to the people of the steppe. The instrument was used by shamans who would play them inside yurts, casting spells and performing rituals. It was believed that the music could cure illnesses and break curses.
