Georgian folk musical instruments are divided into the groups of string instruments, wind instruments, keyboard instruments and percussion instruments.

String instruments are divided into fiddlestick and touch-string instruments. To the group of touch-stringed instruments belong Panduri, Chonguri and Changi. Fiddlestick instruments are Chuniri and Abkhartsa.

The group of wind instruments includes Larchem-Soinari, unreeded and reeded Salamuri, Gudastviri, Chiboni, Buki, Pilili, Duduki and Zurna.

The group of keyboard instruments includes Buzika, Tsiko-Tsiko and Garmoni (Accordion)

Doli, Daira, Diplipito and Tsintsila belong to the impact tools.

Keyboard instruments: Garmoni (Accordion) and Tsiko-Tsiko can hardly be considered to be Georgian Folk instruments but taking into view their popularity and their two-century-long history, we decided to place them in our web-site.
