This instrument is played across the mouth and produces a popping and twanging sound that resonates through the players jaw.
The curved instrument is a rib bone, possibly from a pig, that I found on the beach by Duck Creek. The two in an X shape are strips of kareao or supplejack from the bush behind Hill Homestead.

  1. Tumeke rawa atu, e hoa. There would be some nice resonances from the bone and the shape of your jaw as you are playing it. A simplified 'jews harp' but very effective.
