Kanonaki

The Kanun or "piano of the East", is a traditional instrument of the Middle East, known in Greece since antiquity as a triangle or knee and in Byzantines as a choir book. It is a stringed instrument, with intestinal or nylon strings, played with two pens attached with metal thimbles on the index fingers of both hands. In each string, mobile nuts raise the pitch according to the small intervals of the traditional music scale where the organist moves.
