Today's cue accompanied the Detour from Episode 3 of The Amazing Race 24 (2014).  Teams traveled through the Malaysian jungle, accompanied by a Murut hunting guide. Using blowguns, team members were required to knock down a bird-shaped target in order to continue.
Sometimes Amazing Race cues require a heavier reliance on ethnic instruments and styles to help place the viewer in the appropriate region of the globe. Here, though, the emphasis was on the fun action of the event, with only a light sprinkling of ethnic instrumentation throughout.
