An instrument

This piece is a bamboo flute. It produces a sound that is low like that of the venerated hundred-pace snake and is used to placate the souls of the dead. In the past, it was also an important tool used by young men to court young ladies.(Text by Pai Lu Wu, translation by Chao Ling Kuo)
