Considered to be a wind instrument that everyone can play because it does not require an embouchure, the bahu is a Chinese folk flute that has the appearance of a regular bamboo side blown flute but for the fact that it has a copper reed in the mouth piece. The bahu produces a mellow and charming sound that can be quite haunting – you simply put your lips over the lip plate and blow into the instrument.
