Palaung heteroglottal mouth harp

Palaung pasaguan

Stands out from other mouth harps of the area by being heteroglottal and held between the teeth inside the mouth with only the tip of the lamella protruding.. Remarkabe for its small size- frame 3 cms. long but nevertheless with a similar pitch to longer bamboo instruments.
