Description
Played as the occasion required, flutes were personal possessions, varying greatly in both design and decoration. There are several types, each producing distinct sound. The nguru were carved from one piece of wood, whalebone or even human bone and decorated with design. They are played by blowing air from the nose directly into the flute.
