OGENE

(Og-eh-neh)

 

Incredibly resonant twin bells, central to much traditional Igbo music, available in a variety of sizes. A soft rubber-woven wooden beater is included with the largest size. 

 

The bell can produce a wide range of tones depending on which part they are struck.

 

Ideal as a more organic replacement for the standard Westernised salsa bell.

 

 

Watch the videos to hear the magical sound these bells can produce in an ensemble!
