The history of Satar is relatively long. According to the History of Music (A classical Uyghur manuscript) written by Mullah Esmu Tulamuji in 1854, as early as the 14th and 15th centuries, this instrument has appeared and had well-known performers within Uyghur circles. It was first popular in the Kashgar and Shache regions of southern Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, and later spread to all parts of northern Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. In the 1950s, the Satar found its way to the border town of Yining, where the Kazakh minority nationality and other nationalities live. Nowadays it has found its way northward to all parts of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and has become a favorite stringed instrument of Uygur people in most regions.

 

萨塔尔的历史较为悠久,据1854年毛拉·艾斯木吐拉穆吉孜撰写的《乐师史》(古维文手抄本)中记载,早在十四、十五世纪时,维吾尔族民间已经出现这种乐器,并已有著名的演奏家了。它最早流行于南疆喀什、莎车一带,后来逐渐传至北疆各地。20世纪50年代,萨它尔又流传到哈萨克族聚居的边城伊宁。如今它已流行全疆各地,成为维吾尔族喜爱的拉弦乐器。
