​The background music, Setar (Persian: سه‌تار‎, from seh, meaning "three" and tār, meaning "string") is a Persian musical instrument. It is a member of the lute family, which is played with index finger of the right hand. Two and a half centuries ago, a fourth string was added to setar. it has 25 - 27 moveable frets which are usually made of animal intestines or silk.
It originated in Persia before the spread of Islam.

 

The Setar is usually played as a solo instrument. Because of its low volume, the Setar cannot play a major role in an ensemble unless some electronic devices are used. On the other hand, it can be played in a quiet place without bothering others. Because of this reason, the Setar is considered the instrument
of one’s solitude and privacy
