Dizis made of bamboo are also called Chinese bamboo flute. Often they are played with diverse techniques, e.g. circular breathing, overtones, flying-finger-trill, polyphony, flattering and double tongue. Additional to the blow hole and the six finger holes the dizi has another hole, the mokong. Over the hole a very thin bamboo or rice paper membrane is fixed by a little bit of moisture. This makes a nasal buzzing sound that's responsible for the really unique timbre of a dizi.
