Bandurria history

Bandurria is a type of Spanish plucked string instrument. The origin is Pandora, an ancient Greek instrument. Pandora is said to have existed around the 6th century BC and existed during the Mycenaean civilization of ancient Greece. Historical records of Bandurria’s specific existence as a musical instrument have been confirmed in archaeological sites around the 5th century. It became popular in European society because the ancient Romans adopted this instrument a lot. During the Age of Discovery, it spread to the Caribbean region and was also used in South American countries such as Peru and Chile. It is also widespread in the Philippines in Southeast Asia. Bandurria was initially a guitar with only three strings, but in the 18th century it became five sets of two strings. The final result is 6 sets of 2 strings. Now popular in many countries.
