Hindewhu

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.
