The erhu

This is a list of erhu performers and contains a non-exhaustive list of some of the more notable players. The erhu, sometimes referred to as the Chinese violin, is a bowed musical instrument with two strings.

The erhu produces a characteristic sound due to the python skin covering its resonator. As with all bowed string instruments, sound is produced by a bow pulled across the strings to vibrate the soundbox. The erhu does not have a fingerboard as on a violin, stopped notes are produced by the left hand fingers pressing on the strings.

The erhu is most popular in Chinese societies and cultures, therefore, many notable erhu players are ethnically Chinese.
