Rebab – Indian Myth and Folklore

Rebab – Indian Myth and Folklore is a podcast of stories from myth and folklore of India. The Rebab is one of the oldest bowed string instruments. It is the prototype from which many other bowed instruments originated. Used as an accompaniment by epic storytellers and wandering minstrels, the Rebab, which originated in West Asia, spread in its various avatars along trade routes over much of South and Southeast Asia, North Africa and parts of Europe. I am Mrudula Govindaraju (I can’t play the Rebab), but I will tell you fantastic stories.
