African Musical Instruments
From the deserts of the north through the forests and plains of sub-Saharan Africa, environment and lifestyle dictate the materials and forms of musical instruments. This collection features some of the remarkable instruments that bring African music to life. It includes the drums, rattles, and tambourines that form the foundations of rich rhythm patterns, along with melodic bells, sanzas (thumb pianos), reeds, stringed instruments, and xylophones. It spans the enormous space that is Africa and a wide range of music—from deep tradition to jazz.
