Instruments Arrived!

The Rabab and Surmandal have arrived. It has been interesting trying to practice the sitting position for the rabab and trying to balance the instrument with the right hand. I also realized that since it has no frets, that means you have to tune Saregamapa by ear or having a teacher mark them. Hopefully I can figure out how to play with some help. The left picture is from Canada day after TurbanUp on my sister's Manja. I didn't expect the Surmandal to be so large (and heavy!). It is a beautifully crafted piece.
