Longhouse Visit Part 5 - Musical Instrument

To end our Educational Evening, Mr. Edwards brought out a couple of traditional instruments and demonstrated how to play them before letting us loose.


These were examples of a traditional Bidayuh musical instrument called 'pratong' which are made from bamboo. They're played by striking parts of the instrument to create a rhythm, as demonstrated in the video below.

The video clip is a bit lengthy, but you can watch as we attempt to play the instrument and then jam with both of them later on.
