made musical instruments are com
mon among Kafirs. But their music
bores you with its monotonous tune.
If you want to make something
unique try this one played by a na
tive at one of the diamond mines:
A gasoline can battered into cylin
drical shape, stuck over the end of a
bamboo stick two and a half feet long
and dug out all its length save a couple
of inches at each end; with a wire
stretched from the lower end, held in
the hand, to the inside of the can
hanging over the shoulder.
There was a small arched bow about
six Inches long, strung with hairs,
which the player held taut with his
thumb, rubbing it up and down on the
wire, getting tones by the pressure of
his fingers on the wire.
