A simsimiyya being played.

The simsimiyya (Arabic: ‎, plural simsimiyy?t, Arabic: ?‎) is a traditional plucked lyre used in Egypt, Jordan and Yemen.

It is mostly used by Bedouins as a social instrument. In Egypt it is traditionally used to accompany a dance called bambutiyya, as well as among the musicians called suhbagiyya, in the cities of Port Said and Ismailiyya.[1]
