Stone musical instruments

Tuy An lithophone is a musical instrument made using eight slabs of stone. It dates back around 2,500 years and was unearthed in 1992 at a mountain (Nui Mot) in Tuy An district’s An Nghiep commune. This is reportedly the best sounding lithophone ever found in Vietnam.


Ken Da (a stone-made horn) was discovered in late 1995 in Tuy An district’s An Tho commune and dates back 2,500 years. It has two holes with a spiral edge inside, allowing different pitches to be produced.
