An instrument of the oboe type. In three parts: conical shaped body into which fit the bell-shaped lower section and a metal mouthpiece. The circular disc usually surrounding the top of the mouthpiece is missing as is the double reed (often a folded piece of leaf or blade of grass.) Made of soft wood with five stops. Peculiar to the ruling class although a performer may play on it for begging. Not indigenous to the area but the result of Islamic influence.
