Australian and JapaneseInstruments
Japanese and Australian instruments are pretty different like modern Australian instruments are shiny, new and colorful whereas Japanese instruments are old, fragile and passed down. Here are some Australian aboriginal instruments, clapsticks, claves, bullroarers, didgeridoos, lagerphones and wobble boards. Now here are some Japanese instruments, 17 string koto, 80 string koto, binzasara, biwa, fue, nohkan, tsuzumi and an ichigenkin. Most Japanese instruments are stringed and very hard to play because there are so many strings to pluck. To play a koto you strap these little black rubber bands around all of your fingers with little squares of plastic and strings. To play a didgeridoo you play with continuously vibrating lips to produce the drone while using a special breathing technique called circular breathing. This requires breathing in through the nose whilst simultaneously expelling stored air out of the mouth using the tongue and cheeks.
