This is a musical instrument made of bamboo tube where a few strings are made. In the middle of the tube there is a hole in rectangular shape. The player holds the instrument in their knees or shoulder and with two additional bamboo strips they slightly strike the strings. Each and every string sounds differently. It is a traditional musical instrument of the Garo community.
