Sanza Kongo (N° 17845)

The diversity of African musical instruments

Tively prevalent in Central Africa, this musical instrument or sanza consists of a sounding board on which parallel metal blades have been attached. The soundboard formed by the support, with holes on the back, contains seeds that produce a sound when the object is manipulated. The slats, of varying lengths, are sometimes made of bamboo. The thumbs of both hands will lean on the board to vibrate the anterior ends of the tabs. In Zaire, however, where all fingers are used as for the piano, groups of instruments play on complementary registers. The instrument will also accompany, sometimes, a singer. Although sanzas are often decorated with traditional motifs, this copy is devoid of them.
as satiny-use silk, crusty scattered residue.
