Literally, Gu Qin means "Ancient Musical Instrument". It is a seven string plucked Chinese musical instrument of zither family. Its sound is very peaceful, like resounding in a valley.
The sho, the Japanese mouth organ descended from the Chinese sheng, is used in gagaku (court music).
Of Russian origin, the Balalaika has a triangular body with generally three strings (sometimes six strings in 3 courses). It is considered to be lute-like folk instrument from the northern and central regions of Russia created during the 17th century. The Balalaika was created by the common people that could not afford the expensive “Domra”. The Balalaikan songs illustrate the sorrows and joys of the peasants and workmen.
