Kobza - Ukrainian lute-like stringed musical instrument with 4 (or more) paired strings. Kobza consists of a body and a neck, and 810 intrusive frets are located on the neck, with which you can get sounds of a chromatic scale on each string. There were also tools without frets. The name "kobza", "koboz", "kobuz", etc.
Can be traced back to 1250 in both Slavic and non-Slavic written sources. Therefore, the appearance of the instrument can be attributed to more ancient times. Semantic studies prove the existence of similar tools in other countries: kopuz - Turkey, kopus - Croatia, koboz - Hungary, qopuz - Azerbaijan, cobza - Romania, and so on. Undoubtedly, the Kobza was brought into the territory of Russia by the Turkic tribes, but most likely, in these lands the instrument acquired its final appearance.
The classic of Ukrainian literature Taras Shevchenko perpetuated in his work the image of a kobzar a folk narrator who accompanied his songs and dumas by playing the kobza. Kobzu should not be confused with the modern bandura belonging to the family of harps, zither, gusel and appeared at the beginning of the XIX century, although due to the entanglement of the nomenclature, the name bandura is used to describe the kobzy before 1800.
