Description: Domra is a Russian folk musical instrument, which became most widespread in Russia in the 16th century among musicians – buffoons. In 1648, by decree of the tsar, persecution of buffoons began. Soon the domra disappeared. Found again in 1896, it was reconstructed by V.V. Andreev together with the master S.I. Nalimov, who created its orchestral varieties. These were three-string domras (small, alto, bass) with fourth tuning. The reconstruction of the instrument immediately introduced the domra into the sphere of academic musical art. The domra group became not only an indispensable part of the Russian folk orchestra, but also formed its melodic basis.

In addition, the domra finds its use as a solo instrument. Concert plays and works are written for her.
