The Rebab (I)

Quote:
The rebab (Arabic: Rababa) is the name of several related bowed (but sometimes plucked) string instruments that independently spread over much of North Africa, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and parts of Europe. It is one of the earliest known bowed instruments, named no later than the 8th century, and is the parent of many bowed and stringed instruments.

There are chiefly 3 main types:

A long-necked bowed variety that often has a spike at the bottom to rest on the ground, a short-necked double-chested or "boat-shaped" variant and a pear-shaped body, quite similar to the Byzantine lyra and the Cretan lyra.

Here are different Rebabs on stamps:

Bedouin Rebab, issued by Israel on February 13, 1990 to publicize the Bedouin Culture museum:

Rebab, Issued by Tunisia on March 20, 1970:

Rebab player as a part of Malouf band, issued by Tunisia on October 23, 1972:

Bedouin Rebab, issued by Israel on June 14, 2010:

Rebab, issued by Libya on November 1, 1995:

Rebab, issued by Algeria on February 17, 1968:

The Algerian Rebab on FDC with a special commemorative postmark shows the Rebab:


Other time I will show different Rebabs from central and east Asia.

Scott #3184h depicts a John Held Jr. illustration featuring a 20s era flapper, a saxophonist and a trombone player, while Scott #3184k specifically honors the rise of American jazz and shows two brass players.

During the last decade, the UNESCO declared 15 several Mongolian cultural elements as intangible cultural heritage of humanity that should be preserved for the coming generations. Mongolia issued on November 22, 2019 an attractive set of 5 stamps and two SS's show several of them. Although my Folklore collection concentrates in African and SEA folklore, I bought this Mongolian set because its beauty.

One stamp and the two SS's show Mongolian musical instruments:

Traditional music of the Tsuur - Inscribed by UNESCO in 2009:

Traditional music of the Morin Khuur - Inscribed by UNESCO in 2008. Stamp shows Jamyan Gombodorj (1919-2008), a renowned Mongolian Morin khuur player:

Urtiin Duu, traditional folk long song - Inscribed by UNESCO in 2008. Stamp shows Namjilyn Norovbanzad (19312002), a Mongolian singer of the traditional long song:

Other stamps in the set show:
100T - Mongolian calligraphy
200T - Falconry, a living human heritage
300T - Mongolian knuckle-bone shooting
400T - Mongol Biyelgee, Mongolian traditional folk dance
