Yuping Flute

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/11/4

Flutes are made widely in China and those made in Yuping Dong Autonomous County of Guizhou province is the most well-known. The local bamboo used for manufacturing flutes is distinctive. Such bamboo grows among the rocks and brook water where is not exposed to sunlight, therefore its pipe is slim and strong. The manufacturing process is very strict and complex. Each flute, from choosing material to finished product, should go through four work flows and 72 working procedures. The most crucial step is Kaiying, or opening sound. The tuning technician constantly changes and modifies the flute until it produces perfect melody. The last step is to beautify the flute. Pretty natural landscape, flowers, birds and lines of songs or poems are typically carved on the body of the flutes before lacquering, waxing and polishing.
