Widespread in Central Africa, this traditional African musical instrument or sanza consists of a resonance board on which metal blades of variable length have been fixed. 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 surmounted by a sculpture in the round representing a tabwa ancestor.
Height on base: 45 cm.
Oiled brown patina with ocher reflections.
