Obrazek

 Šestistrunná lyra z Etiopie, na níž hrávali potulní hudebníci národa Azmari. Jedná se o přeměnu z řecké lyry, která se do Etiopie dostal po řece Nil z Egypta. Někdy se také říká, že původ kraru sahá až k harfě krále Davida.

The krar is a five- or six-stringed bowl-shaped lyre from Ethiopia and Eritrea. The instrument is tuned to a pentatonic scale. A modern krar may be amplified, much in the same way as an electric guitar or violin.

The krar, a chordophone, is usually decorated with wood, cloth, and beads. Its five or six strings determine the available pitches. The instrument's tone depends on the musician's playing technique: bowing, strumming or plucking. If plucked, the instrument will produce a soft tone. Strumming, on the other hand, will yield a harmonious pulsation. The krar is often played by musician-singers called azmari, and accompanies love songs and secular songs, which makes it an enjoyable accompaniment to a cozy meal.
