Impact Soundworks Plectra 3 - Kazakh Dombra
Welcome to the third entry in Impact Soundworks' Plectra Series of deep-sampled plucked, picked, and strummed instruments from around the globe!
The Kazakh Dombra is an ancient fretted lute with two strings and an integral part of traditional music from Kazakhstan. It is playable as a solo instrument, as part of an ensemble, or to accompany epic songs and poetry. To truly capture the authentic playing style of the dombra, the instrument was performed by Asset Abdrakhmanov in Almaty, Kazakhstan and recorded by Sergei Smorgov.
