Otherwise known as the ‘temple clarinet’, the horanawa is a beautiful little contraption. It’s actually more like an oboe than a clarinet, with a tiny mouthpiece that touches the tip of the teeth.
The instrument is traditionally made with the horn of a cow and brass. Underneath the brass mouthpiece there are seven tone holes interspersed regularly down the length of the horn, which flares out in brass at the end.
The horanawa is often used in Buddhist religious ceremonies as an accompaniment to percussion instruments.
