The Xiao ( 箫 ) is a Chinese vertical end-blown flute. It is generally made of dark brown bamboo (called “purple bamboo” in Chinese). An ancient name for the xiāo is shùdí (竖笛, “vertical bamboo flute”). The Xiāo is a very ancient Chinese instrument usually thought to have developed from a simple end-blown flute used by the Qiang people of Southwest China. The modern six-hole form of the instrument goes back to the Ming Dynasty.
