Description

Ngoni or Kamele'Ngoni ten-string professional professional

A bit of history

The Ngoni is an instrument that is part of a large family of traditional harps that extends through out through sub-Saharan West Africa. It is refined on pentatonic scales and is traditionally called Donso Ngoni (Ngoni of Hunters).
Donso Ngoni has six strings. In the 1950s strings were added to him, thus creating the Kamele'Ngoni or Kamelo'Ngoni (Ngoni of young people).
Donso Ngoni could be one of the most vivid melodic instruments in this great region of Africa.
It belongs to societies of hunters/warriors of animistic beliefs.
It is an instrument surrounded by great mysticism. Traditionally, among other functions, it accompanies the prayers, songs and words of musicians. Understand that we cannot define them just by saying that they are musicians since their functions are not really aesthetic in the western sense of the word. They are people who know secrets directly related to the protection and success of the warrior or hunter.
The Kamele'Ngoni (more than six strings), as the model presented on this page, is much more related to modern musical aesthetics. Differentiating itself from its predecessor not only in the number of strings but also in its functions. The music and culture of the Ngoni (as well as other traditional African melodic instruments) was largely a generator of the blues.
Today it is a globally known instrument and increasingly sought after by musicians of all styles, both professional and amateur.
