A trumpet like instrument made from an animal's horn. It was traditionally used as a Maroon

To the first person who replied "this is stupid", please enlighten me on how this is frivolous or trivial in any way. Isn't this history? Important history at that?

Persons who say this is stupid your the stupid ones cause you can't learn
This was useful information.
The abeng is the most recognised symbol of the Maroons. It is a cow's horn with the tip cut off. The Maroons sent secret war time messages by the drum and the abeng. Blowing through a square cut into the concave side of the abeng produced a sound heard for miles, which could be decoded by those who knew how. Today it is used mainly for ceremonial and festive purposes.
