What instrument is that in the background?


I love it. It sounds a little like the Greek kabooki, or maybe it's oriental. If anyone recognizes it, please share. Thanks.

I just saw this beautiful movie. I don't know if you already found out your answers in the past 3 years, but here is my idea. Yes it does sound like Greek bouzouki (I think that is what you meant), sometimes but I feel like it is a Lute. And in some of the songs, they definitely play OUD, which is actually very similar to Lute.
I was looking for this great soundtrack, but they obviously did not publish one.
Cheers.

Bouzouki, cümbüs (a Turkish banjo-lute), viola da gamba, cello and double bass are the stringed instruments used for this soundtrack.
actually it has been published: https://itunes.apple.com/it/album/giorni-e-nuvole-original-soundtrack/id287365121
greetings from the composer.
