chambure vihuela








Measuring session on the Chambure instrument, in 2007 at the Musée de la Musique. Previously believed to be a guitar, but now after Joël Dugot's research, acknowledged as a vihuela. This instrument is similar to the Belchior Dias guitar at the Royal College of Music, London, in the use of fluted and vaulted ribs on the back.
