The bolang gu (pinyin: bo lang gu) is a hand-held percussion instrument that is also called a monkey drum. Although these simple and fun drums are often seen as children’s toys (especially at Chinese New Years celebrations), they actually date back to ceremonies held in the Song Dynasty of China as well as Tibet, Mongolia, India and Taiwan.
This activity PDF shares the background of the instrument as well as an easy craft version perfect for a study unit on China, Chinese New Year, Asian studies, world culture studies or music. It's also available as part of the complete Chinese New Year Music Mini-Lesson.
