Early use of the banjo dates back to Africans in Colonial America and it played an important role in shaping traditional African American music. Rise in its popularity led to its association with other forms of music like bluegrass, folk, country and even traditional Irish.


In its modern avatar, the banjo sells in four-string, five-string and six-string variants. While most banjos sell with metal strings, some players prefer gut or nylon strings. Any banjo you play, enjoy the adulation.
