    Mukkuri

    "Mukkuri" is a typical Aynu musical instrument and a type of "toy musical instrument" found in various parts of the world. Mukkuri is 10 cm long and 1.5 cm wide and made of bamboo. Sound is produced by pulling hard on the string on the right and vibrating the inside "tongue" while holding the body with strings on both sides. Although the volume of vibrating sound is law when it is played normally, the sound volume will increase and tone colors will change considerably when it is resonated in the mouth.
