The Xiao (箫) is a Chinese vertical end-blown flute It is generally made from bamboo and is a very ancient Chinese instrument developed by the Qiang people from Southwest China.
Most of the flutes we encounter today can only play one or two scales. Those that are able to play more than one scale would require the player to undergo years of training and strict practice. The Xiao’s uniqueness lies in its ability to play exotic scales like the Harmonic Minor, Harmonic Major, several Japanese scales as well as all the Chinese pentatonic scales. This is also why many people have liken it as “the flute to rule them all”.
