    How to use "Sitar" in context?

    The sitar is a stringed instrument originating in northern India. It is a plucked instrument with a long neck and 26 strings. The strings are held between the player's hands and plucked with the left hand, while the right hand polishes the strings.

    The sitar evolved from the bansuri, a stringed instrument with a shorter neck. The bansuri was used in northern India as part of classical Hindustani music, and the sitar was developed to be a more refined instrument. The sitar was first played in the Mughal court in the 17th century and later used in Carnatic music.
