Habban
Other names هبان
Classification

The habbān (or hibbān[1]) is a type of bagpipe used in the southern coast of Persian Gulf. The term ḥabbān (هبان) is one of several Arabic terms for the bagpipes. The term may be drawn from Hanbān (هنبان), the Persian word for "bag.".[2] In Kuwait, the term habban refers to the traditional Bedouin bagpipe[3]

While the term itself is generic, in Oman the habban is more specifically a variant of the Great Highland bagpipe which has been incorporated into local music.[4]
