Phenomenal!

As a side issue what exactly is the translation of "Zenne"?

I know in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia (probably also Bulgaria but Im not certain) it means woman which is fitting with the type of Oud! Serbo-Croat has many Turkish words in it and this could be one but google translate doesn't agree! LOL

Thank you Samir, Su, Bodhi and Leon :)

Samir, really a phenomenal playing by a phenomenal young man :)

Su, the dimensions of the zenne (for ladies) oud are:

Body length: 478 mm

Body width: 347 mm

Body depth: 170 mm

Neck: 190 mm

String length: 570 mm


Bodhi, thank you for the interpretation of "zenne"

Leon, I'm glad that we share the same feeling and evaluation

for this gifted young man. He's been playing the oud for only four years :applause:
