The instrument Ojwee Nahman is playing has many names: ‘tube fiddle’, aka ‘one string violin’, aka ‘endingidi’, aka ‘rigi rigi’. However you call this type of bowed string instrument; it has one metal string, a wooden tube resonator (covered with goat-, monitor lizard- or python skin), sounds like a violin and is extremely hard to play.
