Rubab (robab, rabab or Kabuli rebab‎) is a plucked, short-necked lute-like musical instrument originally from Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan. Its name is derived from the Arabian word rebab which means "played with a bow", but the Central Asian instrument is plucked, and is distinctly different in construction. The rubab is mainly used by Pashtun, Tajik, Kashmiri and Iranian Kurdish classical musicians.
