Umrhubhe

Umrhubhe is a traditional mouth bow played by the Xhosa people of the eastern cape of South Africa. It is played by drawing a straight stick across the string of the bow whilst using your mouth as a resonator. A simultaneous inward whistling action produces additional sounds. Have a listen to this incredible bow played by Xhosa cultural icon and internationally acclaimed recording artist, Madosini Manqina.
