Bamboo Buzzer - Indigenous Philippine Musical Instrument

The bamboo buzzer is known variously as the balingbing or bunkaka (Kalinga) and batiwtiw (Central Philippines). The bamboo buzzer is a bamboo tube which is open or split at one end. The sound is produced by striking the split end against the palm of the hand. This instrument is also used to drive away evil spirits.
