Tsuur, wooden wind instrument

UNESCO: Urgent Safeguarding List (2009). The tecnique to play the tsuur is a blend of sounds created simultaneously by the musical instrument and the human throat. Amazing instrument.

I loved the short documentary on the Tsuur. I believe the Tuvans play the very same instrument and call it tsuur also.
