Xy­lo­phone

hellobali Guide to Bali - - A-Z OF BALINESE TRADITIONAL CULTURE -

BAM­BOO, along with the var­i­ous prod­ucts pro­duced by co­conut palms,

has long pro­vided all the ma­te­rial needed to build houses and make many of the items re­quired for a com­fort­able life. Bam­boo is also the most mu­si­cal of plants, lend­ing it­self quickly and eas­ily to flutes, wind chimes and the xy­lo­phone-like in­stru­ments known as rindik or tingk­lik. Play­ing one of th­ese, it

is said, in­vites a cool­ing breeze.
