This instrument was collected in the field by Percy Horace Gordon and Hannah Powell-Cotton. It is a small end-blown whistle ("Oogwana") made from the horn of an oribi antelope, in which the player blows against the larger open end of the horn. A narrow and slanted exit hole is carved at the pointed end of the horn, and there are two fingerholes. There is also a small hole punched at the wider end, possibly for a strap.
