The horn is a nearly lost musical instrument, created by the ancestors of the Yao nationality, and has the same effect as the horn in the Yao nationality musical instrument. Made from tender bamboo. When cutting, cut a long bamboo, each bamboo joint is cut with a small bamboo joint, and a bamboo leaf is inserted at the end. The length of the horn varies from four to five knots, and it can be as long as dozens of knots. From top to bottom, from small to large, shaped like a trumpet.
