A blog about preservationist breeding of Azawakh, one of the world's last remaining canine landraces...
The amzhad is a monochord violin used by the Tamasheq nomads. The resonator is of wood in a circular form and is covered with goat-skin. The neck is relatively short and the bow (of curved wood) is made of horse-hair (it was traditionally made of womens' hair...the word for which in Tamasheq is the root of the name of the instrument). It is a close relative of the Arabic "oud".
