Bard Recall: The bamboo shakuhachi is a simple form of flute fashioned from a length of bamboo or reed. In more civilized cultures it is often decorated with bands of minerals or gemstones between the finger holes or notched blow hole at the end, but it is not uncommon to see a fresh shakuhachi cut from a freshwater reed in more rustic locales.
