Small Kamalengoni 10 strings Mali

Small Kamalengoni 10 strings Mali


Instrument made on demand. It takes about one month to make. For further details you can contact me directly.

This is a model that I created in order to propose the same full-bodied sound of the ngoni all while taking up less space. The range is higher than the similar traditional instrument.
