The instrument in this video is a reproduction of the ancient Greek 'kithara' and it was made by Greek master luthier Anastasios Koumartzis of LUTHIEROS MUSIC INSTRUMENTS. The strings on the instrument are of 100% pure silk, which is closest in tone and response to the gut strings of the ancient Greeks. The more time I spend with this kithara, the more I discover about it. I am beginning to understand why the kithara players of the Golden Age (500 B.C.) were considered rock stars!
