Ung Quai - Airophone

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 7:40:40 PM

Ung Quai is a musical instrument of wind family of the free vibrated reed branch. It is used for solo performance in daily activities of the Cotu ethnic group.

It is made of a leaf-shaped thin bronze with the length of 8 cm. The middle of the leaf-shaped thin bronze is cut into two lines on the bias to create a triangle (the base side still sticking to the body of the instrument) as the reed.

When performing, the player slightly places the instrument between two lips and uses his/her finger to strike the head of the instrument to shake the triangle and create the sound inside the mouth.
