Dambura, also danbura, is a fretless two-stringed long-necked lute that is played in northern Afghanistan especially for entertainment in teahouses as a soloist or in a small ensemble to accompany folk songs. A singer often accompanies himself on the dambura. In a teahouse ensemble, the dambura player typically performs with two singers. Both strings are usually struck simultaneously with the fingers up and down. The melody played only on the upper string is accompanied by a drone on the empty lower string.
The body of the dambure consists of two pieces. The sound box is in two pieces, both decorated with a wooden top, brass wire and mother-of-pearl.
The dombra or (Afghan دوتار Dutar, "instrument with two strings") is a widespread plucked instrument of folk music in Afghanistan.
