Xiao (箫)

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.
