Some modern Brazilian instruments feature an extra fifth course tuned a fifth lower than the standard fourth course.Other mandolin varieties differ primarily in the number of strings and include four-string models (tuned in fifths) such as the Brescian and Cremonese, six-string types (tuned in fourths) such as the Milanese, Lombard and the Sicilian and 6 course instruments of 12 strings (two strings per course) such as the Genoese.Each style of instrument has its own sound quality and is associated with particular forms of music.Neapolitan mandolins feature prominently in European classical music and traditional music.During the 8th and 9th centuries, many musicians and artists from across the Islamic world flocked to Iberia.By the 11th century, Muslim Iberia had become a center for the manufacture of instruments.Mandolins evolved from the lute family in Italy during the 17th and 18th centuries, and the deep bowled mandolin, produced particularly in Naples, became common in the 19th century. 13,000 BC, a cave painting in the Trois Frères cave in France depicts what some believe is a musical bow, a hunting bow used as a single-stringed musical instrument.

The round-back has a deep bottom, constructed of strips of wood, glued together into a bowl.Beside the introduction of the lute to Spain (Andalusia) by the Moors, another important point of transfer of the lute from Arabian to European culture was Sicily, where it was brought either by Byzantine or later by Muslim musicians.There were singer-lutenists at the court in Palermo following the Norman conquest of the island from the Muslims, and the lute is depicted extensively in the ceiling paintings in the Palermo’s royal Cappella Palatina, dedicated by the Norman King Roger II of Sicily in 1140.The earliest image showing a lute-like instrument came from Mesopotamia prior to 3000 BC .Bactria and Gandhara became part of the Sasanian Empire (224–651 AD).
