Episode 52: Amis Flute

Nomodac a tipolo is a traditional Amis flute. It uses a section of soft bamboo. With a knife, the flute maker would carve out the inner part of the bamboo, but carefully keep a thin bamboo membrane. Two holes are opened up on the ends of the bamboo. When one plays it, the air vibrates the membrane to make sound.
This episode uses straws and plastic wraps to teach kids about resonance.
