Zuria pepa. Double hornpipe. The two reeds for the instrument are blown through a bamboo mouthpiece or wind cap. The tubes, each with four fingerholes, are of bamboo and both terminate in a horn bell, decorated with brass strips. Made in Sonaribari, Majuli.
The zuria pepa is played with dhol drums and cymbals for dances at Rangali Bihu, the New Year festival that is celebrated all over Assam in mid-April. It is often played in a crouching position. The musician's index and middle fingers stop the top two pairs of fingerholes, while the right index and middle fingers stop the holes at the lower end of the pipes.
