Ever Seen a Nigun Played With This Before?

Brilliant guitarist Nadav Bachar, of A Groyse Metsie and Pshita (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/nadavbacharpshita, www.cdbaby.com/cd/repentancedooresdaltayte) has been spotted with a strange new ax! Check out the video below for some beautiful musicianship on a unique instrument they seem to call a “Ketar”. The nigun was composed by a heavenly Lubavitcher chasid named R’ Hillel Potchoper, who used to pray with this tune. The two cds in the links above, Daltey Teshuva and Yishuv Hada’at come highly recommended for anyone who loves acoustic music and dexterous skill!

And to see what Bachar and his buddy Oren Tzor can do with their limber fingers, see the second video below of some wicked speed on a klezmer-style song!

    what the article calls a ketar looks like a it probably just a nylon double neck with the upper half a 8 string ukelele and the bottom half a 12 string guitar

    sorry turns out a ketar is really a 9 string mandolin and a 11 string fretless nylon guitar
