The Azerbaijani saz is long necked lute and mainly used by Ashiqs. The art of Azerbaijani Ashiqs combines poetry, storytelling, dance and vocal and instrumental music into a traditional performance art. The Azerbaijani saz, generally measures about 110 cm, although there are also other types being played measuring between 70 and 130 cm. The carvel-built bowl is mostly made of mulberry, covered with a soundboard fitted with a pattern of about twenty small sound-holes, and an attached thick neck made of walnut. Sometimes the neck is made hollow and covered with a fretboard. The nine strings of the Azerbaijani saz are grouped in 3 triple courses of steel strings of which the middle course often consists of 2 strings. High-tone and accompaniment strings have a permanent tune, while the tune of bass strings changes according to mode-harmony of composition. Immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of Azerbaijan!
