This is an idiochord stick-zither made from a raffia palm stem, in which the strings are cut from the bark of the same stem, having a central notched bridge, six strings, and six adjustable frets made of partial-plaited rattan. There is one gourd resonator (broken) attached with rattan, just below the bridge. The instrument is played with the gourd held against the player's chest.
