More About This Experience
The 2 string Hmong music instrument is one of the oldest music in the string instruments category. It was founded about hundred years ago and today less and less people know how to play it, and even less know how to make one. In this experience you will get to learn how to make this instrument from scratch! A definite must-try for any music lover.
Many years ago, this instrument was created together with its own style of music for the Hmong people to communicate their love and feelings to one another and was extensively used during big occasions like weddings or the new year. Today much of it has been relegated in favor of western music blasted from laptops. Don't let this old skill and instrument slip into antiquity and be one of the first people outside Laos to try and learn this instrument, and bring one home to impress people or add to your music repertoire if you're a musician.
