Rubab (robab, rabab or rebab) is the name of various lute-like musical instruments from central Asia , including :

  • Kabuli rebab, a plucked, short-necked lute-like musical instrument originally from Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan.
  • Kashgari rubab, a long-neck lute
  • Pamiri rubab

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.
