The komuz is the national instrument of Kyrgyzstan. It is a plucked string instrument. I found this videoclip on YT and it´s really old (b/w) but a good example for Krygisian Komuz music and really amazing , i looked and heard it twice , really great and a good example for world music and here especially for this little unknown country .
