Christmas present to ourselves

Our hulusi came! We’ve wanted one for ages, and it finally arrived! It’s got a beautiful case covered in Chinese writing, and it’s all engraved on the bamboo and the gourd. It’s gorgeous! Now all we have to do is learn to play it lol

For those who don’t know, a hulusi is a Chinese reed flute, made of bamboo and natural gourd. It sounds beautiful and haunting. We already have a xiao, which is a vertical bamboo flue, and two dizis, which are horizontal bamboo reed flutes. We’re getting quite the collection. Sadly, we still suck mightily at playing all of them lol Still, practice makes… less than perfect, but better at least!
