dung (pronounced dūng) is many things. In Tibetan, it is written དུང, and it means conch shell, which is one of the planet’s oldest forms of trumpet. dung is also a society of trumpeters living all over the world who gather together to mass their sound and exchange music. Such gatherings, and their locations, are also called dung.

One of the most loved dung is located in the mid-Atlantic region, and it is a series of chambers beneath a very large structure. dung members know where it is and love to explore its sonic properties. Their sessions can last hours on end, stretching all throughout a day, or more often, all night long.
