Product Description

Made from shea trees with gourd resonators, these are the “real deal”. Balafons are in the Idiophone music family. They have tuned or pitched wooden keys, similar to a modern Marimba or Xylophone. Our supply is generally from Ghana and/or Mali. Gourds are attached under the keys to amplify the notes as they are struck with rubber mallets. All keys and gourds and hand tied to the frame. Delicate, yet pronounced sound!
