From the same family as mandolin and lute, the teardrop shaped bouzouki's history dates back to antiquity, evolving from a six-string instrument to eight strings in the latter half of the 20th century. The front of the body is flat and is typically inlaid with mother-of pearl designs. Played with a plectrum, the bouzouki has a sharp metallic sound.
Still widely played in Greek folk music, the bouzouki has become increasingly popular in contemporary American folk and progressive bluegrass music.
For this signature Bouzuki bundle, EarthMoments sampled and recorded a young prodigy from a traditional Greek family, whose playing has distinct influences of contemporary music styles.
While the soundscape carries a strong classical signature, the sets of both traditional and contemporary phrases gives you the flexibility to easily incorporate the samples into your compositions.
