Music in Mesopotamia


Musical instruments in Mesopotamia included lyres, drums and rattles. 5,500-year-old pipes, triangles, stringed instruments and drums have been found in Mesopotamia. The Mesopotamians may have even devised a primitive form of musical notation. The lyre is an instrument invented by the Sumerians around 3200 B.C. Exquisite lyres wig gold bulls head have been excavated from a royal cemetery in Ur. A lyre was found in the grave of Lady Pu-abi in Ur.
