Do you like erhu? Its a two string instrument sometimes called a Chinese violin. The sound it makes is like a weeping woman.

Thank you, Pilgrim!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725
