Description Two-String Fiddle - Ðàn Nhi

The nhi is popular among several ethnic groups in Vietnam. Dan Nhi is also refered to as Dan Co (Ðàn Cò) in South Viet Nam. It is a sort of vertical violin with two strings of braided silk, a long handle, fretless, and a pipe-bowl-shaped sound-box covered by a snake skin membrane.

It is capable of great flexibility in range, tone, and dynamics. There are three holding positions: The cornet is presses against the musician's hip as he/she walks. The wooden resonant box is held between the musician's knees if sitting on a stool. The cylinder is held between the musician's feet if sitting on the ground.

The nhi, with its melodious sounds, can express the subtle mood of a human's soul. Due to its diversified use, the nhi is indispensable in traditional musical orchestras
