Originally from Iraq, Ziryab settled in the area of Cordoba, Spain, and is credited with not only introducing a fifth string to the traditional instrument known as the oud, bringing Persian and Arabic sounds to Spanish music, but also setting fashion and other cultural trends throughout the Islamic region.
