Street musician playing an Angklung - Yogyakarta (Indonesia)

The Angklung is a traditional musical instrument made of bamboo, developed in the Sundanese community in the western part of Java Island.

The instrument is made of multiple paires of bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are tuned to octaves.

For more information about the Angklung, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angklung
