Musical Instruments, Musical Instruments art and craft, Musical Instruments art of Mizoram, Musical Instruments ArtsThe Traditional musical instruments of the Mizos had been mostly the drum, gong and flute. The drum is made from hollowed out tree trunks two sides of which are covered by fine hides. It is about a foot in diameter and two feet in length.


The drums is used in all feasts and festivals and it keeps hit in songs and dances. The gongs are made of brass and come in various sizes. These have always been imported from Burma and are rather costly. Gongs are sometimes played in a combination of three: each gong having a separate note the three gongs would together produce a tune. Another instrument used was made of gourds in which unfilled reeds were inserted.

The player would blow through one reed and would create a tune by opening and closing holes in the other reeds. Flute was made from bamboo pieces. Now-a-days however, only the drum and gong are used.
