Dink Tuich Trumpet

A traditional South Sudanese instrument, which is made of Antelope Horn, carved, hollowed, perforated, stitched, strung tied and knotted.

It has a narrow rounded point, with marked ribbing around its circumference, following the curvature of the horn. A round gourd is attached to the end to form a bell. The two are perforated and sewn together using fiber string and sealed by cow dung. It has a circular opening cut at the bell to form a mouth.
