Musical Instrument – Bungkau

RM13.00

This jaw harp is made from the outer skin of a palm known as polod among the Kadazandusun community.  The lamella in the centre is meant to vibrate by striking the end of the instrument with the thumb.  The vibrating strip makes very little sound by itself, but if held before the opened mouth, the player can gently magnify the sound by resonance.
