Violin

Violin is a string instrument. It is also known as Fiddle. The sound is produced in the violin primarily by sliding a bow across the strings and manipulating the strings. The instrument originated in Italy around the 16th century. Violin plays a very important role in Indian classical music  and is believed to have been introduced by Baluswamy Dikshithar. In carnatic music, it is primarily used to support the vocalist. When rendered solo in a concert, the violinist is supported usually by the Mrudangam and ghatam.
