      Disambiguation: Also known as the bone flute, it is one of the oldest musical instruments traced back to China.

      Description: The main difference between the Gudi and other instruments is it is made out of bones. Being a wind instrument and a flute as well, it works under same principles as the others - air is blown through a series of holes to produce sound.

      Age: It can be dated back to 6000BC.

      History: Gudis, which have been dated to come from 6000BC, were first dug up from a Neolithic tomb in Central China.
