The Hulusi or cucurbit flute is a free reed wind instrument from China. It is held vertically and has three pipes which pass through a gourd wind chest.
The Hulusi originated in the ethnic Dai Tribe of Southwest China and can be dated back to the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 BC to 220 AD). The sound of the original Yunnan Dai Tribe Hulusi is hauntingly beautiful, fairly soft, and has a very pure, clarinet-like sound. Dai Tribe men would play it to express their love to women, and other ethnic minorities often played the Hulusi in the fields when taking a break from planting or harvesting.
Although the Hulusi is still predominantly performed in China, it has in recent years been adopted by European composers and performers. Rohan Leach from England, Rapheal De Cock from Belgium and Herman Witkam from the Netherlands have all taken the instrument in new directions.
