Recall

The nguru is a small wind instrument native to Prydaen culture that is traditionally made out of the large tooth of an animal but can be made out of carved wood and bone, or molded clay and is shaped like a tooth with a tapering curved end. The nguru consists of a large round opening where one exhales and a smaller opening at the curved end of the instrument, and has between two to four finger holes and is often intricately carved.
