Widespread in Central Africa, this traditional African musical instrument or sanza consists of a resonance board on which parallel metal blades have been fixed. The slats, of variable lengths, are sometimes made of bamboo. The thumbs of both hands will rest on the board to vibrate the front ends of the tongues. In Zaire however, where all the fingers are used as for the piano, groups of instruments play on complementary registers. The instrument will also sometimes accompany a singer.
This sanza is carved with a face and traditional decorative motifs.
Its particularity lies in an additional element forming a bell, fixed in the lower part.
Matte light brown patina.
