Musical Intrumentals of Lahu

Musical Intrumentals :The Lahu musical gourd pipe [naw] is made of a gourd inserted with five bamboo tubes of different lengths tuned to the pentatonic scale. At the base of each tube is a finely crafted reed. These instruments are made in various sizes-small ones being in the upper register, large ones descending to low bass.
Bamboo Jew's harps [a hta] are used in tuned pairs or threes. Young men and women use both gourd pipes and Jew's harps to 'talk to each other' during courting.
