Original Yunnan Ethnic Dai Tribe Bawu Bawu is a transverse blown free reed pipe originated from ethnic Dai tribe of Southwest China. It is traditionally played by ethnic minority groups in the region, but now its influence has spread across China with its evocative sound associated widely with Chinese culture. Bawu resembles a transverse flute in construction, except for the insertion of a small reed into the blow-hole. The player needs to cover the reed entirely with their mouth and apply substantial air pressure to maintain the vibration of the reed. It has a pure, clarinet-like timbre, and is quite a haunting instrument when played. In recent years, the rich, mellow tone of bawu has become a favorite with composers of film soundtracks (heavily featured in the film"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", an Oscar Winner for Best Music, Original Score, 2000). Meanwhile, the development of advanced bawu models, such as dual pipes bawu and vertical bawu, has flourished its range and varieties, taking this very traditional instrument into a new height. * Item #: YNDABW105 * Pipes: Sandalwood, Premium Quality in G Key * Condition: All Brand New; Tuned, Tested, All Set - Ready to Play * Performance: Top quality wood + Master level tuning for professional performance Plus a free English Learning Guide & Maintenance Tips + Fingering Chart to get you ready to play in 30 minutes!
