An intuitive harp from Mali, without false notes

The ngoni is an instrument made from a calabash (gourd) and tuned to a pentatonic scale. In the country of origin, the kamalengoni, or “young man’s guitar”, is a modern instrument. Inspired by the hunter’s guitar, donsongoni, the ngoni is played in a more recreational sense, for fun and not necessarily during rituals. The harp can be called intuitive because it is tuned to a pentatonic scale, but this is my own opinion.
