Black Lahu player Soppong

pipes as long 2 metres produce a deep gruff sound. The Lahu regard it with great respect as traditionally it was needed to attract the attention of the spirits before a ceremony. One of the few Lahu instruments only played by men. A similar instrument, the touanrr, is played by the Oi people of Laos and several minority groups in China have similar instruments.
