The lingm (Dzongkha གླིངམ་, Wylie: glingm)[1] is a type of flute indigenous to Bhutan.[2] The lingm, the dramyin (lute) and the chiwang (fiddle) comprise the basic instrumental inventory for traditional Bhutanese folk music.[1]

There are two varieties of lingm: the dong lingm (གདོང་གླིངམ་ Wylie: gdong-glingm), which is front-blown; and the zur lingm (ཟུར་གླིངམ་, Wylie: zur-glingm), which is side-blown.[1]
