LYRE

African Instruments // The Nyatiti, Kenya. This is a 5 to 8 stringed lyre played by the Luo people of Western Kenya typically in Benga music.

The balafon is a resonated frame, wooden keyed percussion idiophone.The keys are suspended by leather straps just above a wooden frame, under which are hung graduated-size calabash gourd resonators. A small hole in each gourd is covered with a membrane to produce the characteristic nasal-buzz timbre. It is played with two gum-rubber-wound mallets.
