:: Touch-string instrument - Chonguri

Chonguri is widespread in the western part of Georgia (Samegrelo, Guria, Adjara). Usually, in different regions this instrument has different constructions. In general, it accompanies the performance of solo, two and three part vocal songs. But traditionally solo comic and love songs are accompanied by Chonguri. Chonguri and Doli (a drum) are often played together in the region of Adjara. In this case only one Chonguri and one Doli are involved in the performance of a melody. More than one Chonguri is generally never used while performing. This instruments are usually played by men, as well as women.
