Made of bamboo; the instrument is held horizontally with the
bamboo tongue in front of the opened mouth. The left end is
hit by the thumb of the right hand. This makes the bamboo tongue
vibrate which causes a sound. The mouth serves as a resonator
and by changing the shape and size of the mouth opening, the
overtones can be changed, thus creating a melody. By strongly
breathing in or out the volume can be changed as well. For a
picture of the instrument in use: see the Kubing
from the Atta.
