DESCRIPTION

The 12 blade Classic Ghana Gyli (JEE-lee) is similar to the West African balafon, and is part of the xylophone and marimba family of idiophones. It adds 2 notes lower than the 10 key, giving it more low end and more volume thanks to bigger gourds. Made in Ghana with Africa Heartwood Project, it is crafted in the traditional style of Burkina Faso and northern Ghana. The random tuning makes for very interesting and unique melodies and free improvisation. The pitch range is quite broad, from low notes that have long sustain because of the large gourds, and higher notes for quick response. This xylophone is covered by our satisfaction guarantee, and features:

  • Random low to high tuning, in keeping with use as a percussion instrument
  • Heat dried keys to help maintain tonality and prevent cracking
  • Solid frame construction using hardwood, leather, and rope
  • Full size gourds under each blade to amplify and sustain sound
  • Low notes rake upward to allow room for larger gourds
  • Two rubber mallets included with each balafon
