Amis Tribe has about 40 kinds of traditional musical instruments, which is the most abundant tribe of Taiwan aborigines. Many of these musical instruments are useful in agriculture and pasture activities. For example, the bamboo drum is used to drive away birds during harvest time, or use reed flute to communicate to each other in pasturing cattle. Furthermore, some musical instruments are used to express affection, such as a brave hunter imitates bow to fabricate latuk to show his affection for a woman.
Bamboo musical instruments could make easily and with convenient material supply. Tribe people could make, play and reproduce the instruments at any moment without considering preservation, thus many traditional musical instruments are falling away. In the past 40 some years, all Amis Tribe¡¦s bamboo-made musical instruments are completely disappeared except Haunghaung. Since 1997, Sawtoy and Kakeng Musical Group have started to inquire from the tribal elderly professionals and refer to Academia Sinica¡¦s investigation to make traditional bamboo musical instruments one by one to reproduce precisely the sound that disappeared several decades. The instruments used in the performance of this time were handmade personally by Sawtoy.
Other than the various bamboo wood percussion instruments used during performance, Kakeng Musical Group also used the traditional Amis Tribe orchestral instruments such as Nose Pipes, Miriliton, Pan flute and Haunghaung.
