BAHU - BAWU - BAWO - CHINESE REED FLUTE This is a flute everyone can play. The Bahu (Bawu or Bawo) Chinese flute is a folk instrument that is similar in design to the Chinese Dizi flute. Made from bamboo, this flute requires no embouchure. You simply put your lips over the white lipplate and simply blow into the instrument. The flute has a copper reed in the mouthpiece. It is this which creates a very unique sound. This instrument is in the key of D which makes it perfect for irish music. With the reedy sound it sounds similar to a set of uilleann irish pipes.
