Singing Bamboo features Vietnamese classical, folk, contemporary and world music. The songs, often accompanied by vocals, are played on a variety of unique bamboo instruments native to Vietnam, as well as new, invented instruments. Khac Chi Bamboo Music's participatory, humourous shows feature such rare instruments such as the dan bau (one-stringed zither), the dan trung (suspended bamboo xylophone), the koni (a long flute played by two people simultaneously) and many more.
