 MY PICK!
Aslatua
* Africa *
The gourds come from the Swawa tree in West Africa, which are dried, hollowed, filled with pebbles, and connected with a string. These are handcrafted in Africa by village cultural artisans supported by the non-profit Africa Heartwood Project. See video demonstration HERE. I got a pair a couple weeks ago and I'm so in love with the sound! They're a little challenging but that's part of the fun to me!

Shamisen (Saxian)
**Japan**
You've seen it a million times but probably had no clue what it was called (er, maybe that's just me?). The Samxian is a three-stringed, Japanese musical instrument derived from the Chinese instrument sanxian. The shamisen in traditional Chinese music is almost as common as the guitar is in American music.

**India** 
Used in Hindustani classical music, it is said to most resemble the sound of the human voice. Pitch is determined by sliding the fingernail against the string rather than pressing it against a fingerboard (like a violin).  This instrument is said to be very difficult to play.
See it in action HERE.

The sitar is a plucked stringed instrument used mainly in Hindustani music and Indian classical music. It's probably has the most identifiable sound of all the instruments in this post. The sitar gained popularity in 1960s America after the Beatles featured the sitar (played by George Harrison) in "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", "Within You Without You" and "Love You To". Add a sitar to ANY music for instant surreal exotic flare.
