The bamboo panpipe wot
This bundle of bamboo pipes originally is coming from Northeastern Isaan, but is nowadays sold as a tourist attraction.
Legends say that the wot once was making sounds by whirling it in the air, but this does not work on the actual models,
which are quite easy to play and mainly are tuned in a pentatonic scale.
If out of tune, rice corns can be fixed at the end of the bamboo secions with some glue in order to raise the pitch.
The wot maybe a "cultural follower" of the famous Khene mouthorgan from Laos.
