Not to be confused with Chuurqin.

The choor is a type of end-blown flute of varying lengths, with 3-5 holes made with reed or wood. Common among Inner Asian pastoralists, this instrument is also known as tsuur (Mongolian), chuur (Tuvan), sybyzgy (Kazakh) and kurai (Bashkir).

The chuur is said to be a very ancient instrument and is unknown in Outer Mongolia[1]
