*Angklung is an Indonesian musical instrument consisting of two to four bamboo tubes suspended in a bamboo frame, bound with rattan cords. The tubes are carefully whittled and cut by a master craftsperson to produce certain notes when shaken or tapped. Each angklung produces a single note or chord, so several players must collaborate in order to play melodies.
