It accompanies dances and comic songs. During dances, the pilili is played with a doli, in comic songs_ with vocals. Main parts: the trunk (1) and mouthpiece (2). The trunk (1) is a pipe of 25-30cm in length. It has 5-7 keys. The mouthpiece (2) is a small pipe, the length of which depends on the sound needed. The trunk (1) is cut out of plum-tree and elder. Formerly, the mouthpieces were also made of elder, but today bamboo is used. The Pilili has a diatonic scale of one octave. -
