This traditional Philippines instrument is a bell-shaped pipe that features a reed mouthpiece. The bell of this traditional Southeast Asian pipe is crafted from the leaves of bamboo plants, and the part of the instrument which holds the reed is designed from a piece of coconut shell. Often, these pipes are decorated with bright, pretty colors, such as robin's-egg blue paint or dye, and they are quite unique and interesting to behold. Along with the litguit percussion instrument, there are many exciting and tuneful Filipino traditional instruments, each of which creates its own original sound.

  • Learning instruments

To learn an instrument, look for a patient, caring music teacher with years of experience teaching students of all skill levels. If you're a beginner and you want to learn a traditional Filipino instrument, such as a sahunay, you may need to find a music teacher who is descended from the indigenous people of the Philippines. After all, these indigenous tribes created these instruments centuries ago, and their descendants continue to carry on the old traditions by learning the instruments and performing music with them for audiences in the Philippines. Of course, they may be others who've also mastered the sahunay; however, the indigenous people of the Philippines will undoubtedly understand the instrument very well.

  • Finding out more

Learning more about traditional instruments can be fascinating - particularly if a person is descended from the people who initially invented and played the instrument in a certain country or region. For example, if your background is Filipino, you may be intrigued by the beauty and unique sound of traditional instruments from the Philippines, including the sahunay pipe reed instrument.

These pipes have an original sound, and they may sound lovely when several of them are played in unison. These pipes may be used as part of a group of instruments, or played alone - as well, male or female (or both) vocals may accompany the sound of the Filipino sahunay pipe.
