Traditional Chinese Flute (Hu Lu Si) Performed by Clara Lin
10-11, 12:15–12:25 (America/Bogota), Chiva Lounge

The hulusi is a free reed wind instrument from South-East China. It is held vertically and has three bamboo pipes that pass through a Calabash gourd wind chest; the center pipe has finger holes and the outer two are typically drone pipes. It is not uncommon for a hulusi to have only one drone pipe while the second outer pipe is merely ornamental. The drone pipe has a finger hole which allows it to be stopped.
