The krar or kraar is a five- or six-stringed bowl-shaped lyre from Eritrea and Ethiopia. The instrument is tuned to a pentatonic scale. A modern krar may be amplified, much in the same way as an electric guitar or violin. See more pictures here.

Temesgen has invented a 10 stringed krar.

Temesgen is available for in-person or Skype krar lessons.
