AGÍDÍGBO

£80.00Price
  • (agid-igbo)

    Yoruba thumb piano, made from large lightweight wooden box (approx 50x38x8 inches)and wide metal blades. Used percussively as well as melodically.

    These instruments are usually tuned to play the role of a speaking voice in the music, rather than to melodically match a musical scale.
