The Ede groups live mainly in Tay Nguyen, the central highlands of Vietnam. Gongs are one of the most valuable instruments for Ede people.

Each player strokes the back or front of the flat gong by a wooden stick aggressively, to create unique rhythmic patterns. However, for this recording, some of the tracks instead of using Gong as instruments, use Bamboo. Bamboo instruments such as Cing Kram are played by bamboo-made mallets/sticks.

Ede people usually practice with the Cing Kram first, and afterwards play the gong, as the gong is more a sacred symbol and instrument.
