Playing the Khene
written by Ingo Stoevesandt

This bamboo mouthorgan is well known worldwide, and nowadays it is even not rare to find one on Ebay...
More and more instruments are sold worldwide, but due to the lack of quality, most of these instruments
end up as a dust catcher. Maybe it is the exotism of the instrument which made it popular.
Another reason for its popularity might be that people think it is easy to play a bunch of bamboo pipes.

When the first attempts of playing are over,
many give up after discovering that playing this bunch of bamboo is not that simple!

So, how do you play an instrument like that?
