Sanza Chokwe Lamellophone (N° 20823)

Widely used in Central Africa, this traditional African musical instrument or sanza consists of a sounding board to which parallel metal slats have been attached. The slats, of varying lengths, are sometimes made of bamboo. The thumbs of both hands will press on the board to vibrate the front ends of the strips. In Zaire, however, where all fingers are used as for the piano, groups of instruments play in complementary registers. The instrument will also sometimes accompany a singer.
This sanza is carved with a face and traditional decorative motifs.
Oiled brown patina, matt. Abrasions.
