The harp is a stringed musical instrument. Harps have been known since antiquity in Asia, Africa and Europe, dating back at least as early as 3500 BCE.


  • I lay my harp on the curved table,
    Sitting there idly, filled only with emotions.
    Why should I trouble to play?
    A breeze will come and sweep the strings.
    • Bai Juyi, "The Harp", in The White Pony: An Anthology Of Chinese Poetry (1949), ed. Robert Payne, p. 220
