Description:
The Kafir harp (or waj, waji, vaj or vaji in the local language) is a traditional harp with a bow-shaped body and four to five strings, used by the Kafir in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan. One source credits Buddhism with having brought Indian-based harps as far west as Afghanistan, giving rise to the waji.

The Kafir harp has been compared to the ennanga of Uganda and harp designs used in Sumer and Ancient Egypt as far back as 3000 BCE.
