Irish Bouzoukis are large relatives of the mandolin family, and are sometimes called octave mandolins or citterns. They evolved from the 1960s and 1970s Irish folk music revival, when Greek bouzoukis were used as background rhythm instruments and later adapted into a new instrument.
The three main differences between the Irish bouzouki and Greek bouzouki lie in the shape of the body, the length of the fingerboard, and the tuning of the strings.
