Chordophone

World music classification for instruments that produce sound from a vibrating string stretched between two points which is bowed, struck or plucked. The most common Western instruments of this category belong to the string family (violin, harp). The koto (Japan), erhu (China) and the sitar (India) are examples of non-Western chordophones.
