The four-stringed domra

Domra built by Luthier B. Usenko from Highland Park, New Jersey, USA The domra received four strings from Ukrainians. In Ukraine a four-string version of the domra tuned in fifths similar to the mandolin. Four-stringed version was first introduced in 1920 and became extremely popular. The four-string domra, although thought of as a Russian folk instrument, is not used in Russia itself where the three-string version is universally used and taught.

Russian Domra

The Domra is a small mandolin size instrument with three or four strings. Instrument was developed by Vasiliy Vasilievich Andreev, the Father of Russian balalaika. In contemporary Russian orchestras the domra usually does the melody and accompanied by balalaikas and bayans to play classical and traditional Russian music. Most often domra is played with a pick in Russian Balalaika orchestras or small musical ensembles. Domra is the violin of Russian folk orchestra. It is one of the most flexible instruments in Russian orchestra.

Domra built by Luthier B. Usenko from Highland Park, New Jersey, USA Most likely the domra was delivered to Russia in the 12th or 13th century by Mongolians who were ruling Russia at that time.

The tremolo technique often used to play the domra and balalaika. Single striking or strumming is also used to play the domra.

Mandolin, Mandola, Mandolina

Mandolins and Mandolinas evolved from the Lute family in Italy during the 17th -18th centuries, and the deep bowled mandolin produced particularly in Naples became a common type in the 19th century. The original instrument was the mandola (mandorla is almond in Italian and describes the instrument body shape) and evolved in the 15th century from the lute. A later, smaller mandola was developed and became known as a mandolina.

The dombra

  The dombra is a long-necked two-stringed instrument popular in the Central Asia countries such as Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. The dombra is played by either strumming with the hand or plucking each string individually, with an occasional tap on the main surface of the instrument. The Uzbek dombra is usually unfretted, while the Kazakh dombra is played with a fret. There are a number of similar instruments that differ very little from the dombra described here. Turkmenistan has the dutar. Tajikistan has the dombura.
