Widely used in Central Africa, this musical instrument or sanza consists of a sounding board to which metal tabs of varying lengths have been attached. The soundboard formed by the stand, with holes on each side, contains seeds that produce a sound when the object is manipulated. The thumbs of both hands will press on the board to make the front ends of the tongues vibrate. 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. While sanzas are often decorated with traditional motifs, this example has some broken lines that are now indistinct.
