in Downtown Basel .... and a three stringed instrument I had never seen before ...
thank you, Claudine ... it is indeed a balalaika, an instrument originating in Russia

    Très belle scène de rue. Je découvre le balalaika.

    Die Instrumente; mit Ausnahme der Geige, sind eigentlich typisch russisch. Schön hast du dieses Ensemble abgebildet.
    Liebe Grüße Günter

    Infectious street moment. And that is one monster of a balalaika!

    Is it really a balalaika, this very huge string instrument ? how incredible this size - hope the music was beautiful, but the picture is, indeed ! Hugs, Elvi

    Klasse Szene!
    Die Bass Balalaika ist schon sehr ungewöhnlich zumal
    sie für die Straßenmusik ja nicht gerade leicht zu
    transportieren ist!

    J'apprécie le monochrome.

    A very good street photograph that shows the musicians interacting. There's just a small thing I'd like to mention: the cut on the right hand side. Because a little part of the instrument is missing.

    Warm regards, Maria.

    un beau noir et blanc de ces musiciens de rue
    cette balalaïka est de dimension exceptionnelle
    j'aime cette atmosphère
    bonne journée

    Beautiful street photo. I like the expressions of musicians. Very curious one of the musical instruments. A well-assorted trio.
    Hugs, Carlo
