World Music Instrument Collection: Citera

Check it out!

A type of zither used by the Roma people of Eastern Europe; also spelled/sounded-out homonymic-ally, such as Tsitera. Donated by Kathryn Koob.

A note on terminology: "Gypsy" is not a term of insult in the US; however, we wish to respect the sensitivities of other cultures, so as much as possible, we will attempt to use the term "Roma" or "Traveler" in place of gypsy or explain otherwise when not a possibility.
