After years of exploring music, this is our first mention of either the Peruvian Marimacho or the Chinese Erhu. With some research, we inarticulately describe the Peruvian Marimacho as the illegitimate child of the mandolin and the twelve-string guitar (at least twelve strings). In this age of political correctness, the instrument is also referred to as the Bandurria Cusqueno. The Chinese Erhu goes the opposite direction in terms of string count. Using another sloppy description, it’s a two-string fiddle.
