This 14 string Kamale N’Goni was hand made locally in Australia from a resonating calabash, goat skin, wood and with nylon strings which produce a mellow, bluesy sound. It has well Grover tuning keys too for easy adjustable tuning.
The N’Goni is the instrument of the traditional hunter societies of Mali and Guinea. In ancient times it was a sacred ceremonial instrument played during pre-hunt ceremonies to accompany the long, epic stories about famous hunters and mythology. The kamale n’goni is a modern variation of the donso n’goni. Kamale can be translated as “youth”, so the kamale n’goni is said the be the harp of the new generation to play modern arrangements on, rather than the traditional compositions. Today kamale n’goni are usually made with ten, twelve or fourteen strings.
