Buang is a primitive and simple string instrument common among the Santhals of Orissa
This rhythmic chordophone, one meter long, has a bamboo tube, a resonator and a rope. The sound box is an egg shaped basket covered with paper, which varies from odd paper to colored tissue paper cut into strips. This paper covering not only reinforces sound but also gives an attractive outlook. The basket is tied below the bamboo tube at the center. Curved wooden pieces are placed and tied with hempen rope at the openings on either side of the bamboo tube. The instrument is accompanied with group dances.
