The er-hu is a Chinese string instrument, also called ‘the Chinese violin’. Dating back more than one thousand years, it is still very popular today and plays an important role in Chinese classical orchestras and chamber ensembles. The er-hu is also popular among amateur musicians who play it solo or in duets in parks or teahouses.
