According to the great quantity of musical instruments found in the tombs, music was a source of pleasure and relaxation for rich Egyptians. The main instrument was the harp, followed by the flute. In this representation of a painting in the tomb of Nakht (an astronomer of the God Amun during the kingdom of Amenhotep III) we see a flute player, A harp player and a youth playing the norva; the latter one being close to our banjo and made out of a turtle shell.
