Potung is a bamboo cannon - is made of large bamboo to produce the loud blast. One perforated hole is intentionally made at the lower end of the joint so that it can be filled with the fuel (usually kerosene). But the kerosene itself will not fire the Potung when ignited. To help build up the explosive air - someone's need to blow air into the hole first before ignite it with fire to blast away.

The most common hazard experience playing Potung is getting our eyebrows burnt :) as it sometimes accidentally blast or splash out during blast. I have experienced it myself
