A one-note whistle
that is blown in-between melodic yelps. Pygmies in
Central Africa sometimes use this instrument to announce
a successful hunt when returning to the village. Vocalist
Leon Thomas was the first to use this instrument on
jazz recordings in the early 1970s followed by percussionists
Bill Summers, Naná Vasconcelos, and Arto Tunçboyaciyan.
Saxophonist Pharoah Sanders also uses hindewhu.
This type of instrument has many names and is found
in several parts of Africa.
