Collection: String Instruments - Banjo

The banjo, whose name probably derives from the African word "banza", is a plucked string instrument of African origin that found its way to North America through slaves. It gained popularity in the United States during the 19th century, particularly in folk music, bluegrass, and country. Featuring a round body and long neck, the banjo is recognizable by its distinctive sound produced by strings stretched over a metal or wooden hoop, creating a lively, percussive tone.
