A jawzah (jauh-ZAH) was a stringed fiddle-like Zakharan instrument.[1]

DescriptionEdit

A jawzah resembled a thin spiked fiddle with four strings connected to a small soundbox made from a hollowed-out coconut shell. A bow made from horsehair was used to play the instrument.[1]

HistoryEdit

Since coconuts were used for the soundbox of a jawzah, these instruments were popular among the sailors and travelers of the Golden Gulf and the ports surrounding it.[1]
