Pipa

The pipa (pronounced Pee Pah) is a four stringed lute with a pear-shaped body. This instrument is one of the oldest instruments in China, appearing in texts dating back to the second century B.C. Traditionally pipa is mainly a solo instrument, sometimes played in folk ensembles such as traditional silk and bamboo ensembles that are common found in South-East China, or used to accompany story telling, or local opera. Nowadays, the pipa is more often used in contemporary compositions for ensemble, orchestra, and various combinations with both Chinese and western instruments. The name, Pipa, comes from a combination of pi and pa, originally referring to two right-hand techniques: pi means "to play forward", and pa "to play backward".
