Prague, SANA_ All the discoveries conducted by researchers and archaeological experts from different parts of the world have proved that Syria was a culturally rich and prosperous country, the Czech “Europe News” website said in a report.
The report on Saturday touched upon deeply-rooted Syrian musical traditions.
It said that people of Syria wrote music thousands of years ago, adding that this fact was proved through the 29 tablets which were discovered in Ugarit in 1950 which date back to 3400 years.
“On some of these tablets, the first musical note in human history was written. 20 years after the discovery, it was identified that the written songs were dedicated for different social occasions,” according to the website.
The website also referred to the discovery of other clay tablets near Mari city on which records for producers of musical instrument were written. The records documented what artists at that time needed to produce musical instruments such as leather, gold and silver.
These discoveries helped researchers have a clear vision about the kind of musical instruments used in ancient times, the website concluded.
