Lodau dhun

Lodau dhun

This is a Lodau dhun or melody based on the Sindhi shepherd's song "Dhori dhal day sanjha", which describes an evening in the dunes. It is played on the narh, an end-blown, four-holed, low-pitched instrument. Here, the narh player sings as he plays in a technique known as 'gur' which involves simultaneous vocalising while playing.
