Ilme (Hook)

Aygul Ulkenbaeva
The name of this well-known Kazakh kui comes from the finger technique used to perform it: the player hooks the strings with the fingers of the right hand by plucking up on them, rather than strumming down in the usual style of dombra performance. Aygul Ulkenbaeva is the musician. (During, Levin 2001)
