The charumera was the oboe's cousin
The charumera was a woodwind instrument that was played by people running ramen stands in the not-too-distant past. The end is wide like a bugle, but the part where the player places his or her mouth is a double reed. The double-reed instrument the zurna, which was created in Western Asia, crossed the Silk Road and transformed into the Chinese suona, which, in turn, was apparently adapted into the Japanese charumera. When it traveled to France, the zurna was transformed into the oboe. In other words, the charumera and the oboe share a common ancestor.
