Erhu is part of the DVI Series (Downloadable Virtual Instruments).
Originating in China over 1000 years ago the Erhu is the classic Chinese equivalent to the western Violin yet with a much more exotic sound to western ears. It is a very expressive instrument, most well-known for playing melancholic tune, but also capable of playing merry melodies. Often used in both solo and ensemble settings the Erhu is a common instrument in Chinese folk and classical settings.
