The orutu is a one-stringed fiddle originated in the pre-colonial societies of western Kenya, especially amongst the Luo community. The Luo had a strong tradition of stringed instruments and was famous for their skills with harps and lyres. When played with a bow, orutu creates different notes determined by finger pressure against the central stick.
