Harouna Samake

June 30, 2014


Kamélé n’goni (« young men’s harp « ), is a six to twelve strings harp-lute closed to the kora. About 150 cm long, it consists of a half-gourd covered with a skin (usually goat) through which the handle. Strings, in two rows, follow the same line as the neck. Like the kora, it’s alternately played by plucking the strings on the right and left of the big bridge.
