The Latvian kokle is a stringed instrument that is played while resting on the knees or on a table. One hand plays the tune, and the other hand muffles certain strings. The kokle can have varying numbers of strings, and its specific shape is determined by the particular design of Latvia's regions. (Vladimirs Koskins © 2006)
