Burmese Harp actually brought by Bengalee from India in 10th Century or Earlier

     Burmese received their cultural heritage inherited from their Bangalee ancestors. The modern Burmese owe  it to  their ancestors, the Bengalee from Bengal, India. Where the Burmese has got the Arched Harp from? There is reliable source, text and evidences to support that the Burmese harp came from India, Bengal with their (Burmese's) ancestors.
We hope that after reading this article, small little work,all the Burmese will realise and give respect and tribute to their ancestors. The followings are some extracts from the webpage provided for the readers for further reading. Recently the Kim-hae descendants of Indian princess of South Korea went to India and made tribute to the maternal ancestors. We also hope that Burmese will also follow a good example and give respect to their Indian Ancestors. It is very long over due.


        The theory that the arched harp came from Bengal to Burma after the eighth century A.D. is based upon two related sets of evidence. (a) The harps on temple reliefs of medieval Burma (A.D. Iooo-I200) are like the harps found on temple reliefs of Bengal. The Bengal harps, the last to appear in India, have a characteristic elongated shape with the body merging imperceptibly into the neck (P1. V, a). About a century later similar harps appear in Burma on temple reliefs at Pagan (P1.V , b). (b) Various sorts of artistic influences are known to have passed from Bengal to Burma in the early years of the Pagan dynasties (A.D. Io0-I200). Therefore it has seemed logical to assume that the harps as seen on the Pagan temple reliefs are derived from the Bengal harps. The difficulty arises when it is automatically assumed that the Pagan harps are the immediate ancestors of today's Burmese harp.

 How pleasant and enjoyable is the music of the Arched Harp as we may find on youtube.
