Continuing our “Stringed Instruments” series we look at two highly debated instruments, the Nebel and Nebel Azor pronounced (Ad-Zor). Like our previous broadcasts we examine its construction and the debate surrounding its origin culturally as well as the number of strings. Scriptural citations and academic debate also take stage allowing for the case of these instruments origin to be made as a native or foreign invention among the Hebrews. Finally we shall listen to one of the earliest harps still used in Ethiopian worship by Coptic Christians, the Nanga.
