A Kobzar (Ukrainian: kобзар) was a Ukrainian itinerant Cossack bard.
After the abolition of Hetmanate by the Empress Catherine II of Russia the apellation "kobzar" was applied to all itinerant blind singers.
In Ukraine kobzars were organized in Guilds, known as Kobzars'kyj Tsekh and had to undergo a rigorous apprenticeship (usually 3 years in length) before undergoing the first set of open examinations to become a kobzar.
