The dutar is a two string pear-shaped long-necked lute from western China, played by the Uyghur and Uzbek people of Xinjiang Province. Although western ethnomusicologists state that these instruments came from the Persian dutar or dotar (originally a two-string instrument but now with four strings), the Uyghur people say that the Persian instrument descended from theirs.
Dutar can be found in almost every Uyghur home. It is used for family members to sing songs together, as well as the very first musical instrument for young Uyghurs to learn. Music plays an important role for Uyghurs’ life, and dutar is an essential instrument that all Uyghurs, both male and female, can play it well.
