our members.

About Erhu
The erhu is a Chinese two-stringed bowed musical instrument, more specifically a spike fiddle,
which may also be called a Southern Fiddle, and is sometimes known in the Western world as
the Chinese violin or a Chinese two-stringed fiddle.
It is used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. It is the most
popular of the huqin family of traditional bowed string instruments used by various ethnic groups
of China. As a very versatile instrument, the erhu is used in both traditional and contemporary
music arrangements, such as pop, rock and jazz.
