Harp - Bow - Kenya

 

Purchased in Nairobi, Kenya, 1989

From Graciela's Notes

This is a small black leather-head harp. It has only four strings attached to pegs at the neck. There is no sound hole. The body is made of a leather-covered round gourd and decorated with small shells. It is quite attractive. Purchased in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa while on my second visit to that country on June 1989.
