For female participants. A canang (small gong) seureukah (place) is a wooden xylophone that is beaten with a pair of sticks and consists of four to seven tuned hardwood keys which rest on a wooden base, or on a pair of parallel banana stems for greater resonance. The canang seureukeh is played mainly by Acehnese women in the rice field after work for relaxation or at home as a means, for example, of lulling babies to sleep. Copyright 1982.
