The Shinobue (kanji: ŽÂ“J; also called takebue) is a Japanese transverse flute that has a high-pitched sound. It is found in hayashi and nagauta ensembles, and plays important roles in noh and kabuki theatre music. It is heard in Shinto music such as kagura-den, as well as in traditional Japanese folk songs.
How are musical sounds produced from various instruments? In this quiz I have avoided the ones that we all know such as the piano and the violin. You can tell me how those are played but how about the ones in this quiz?
