ABOUT THIS PRODUCT: 

The Ghanaian Xylophone (Gyil) is an instrument traditionally played in Ghana Xylophones can be played solo, but are also frequently played in pairs (male and female).

The Gyil has an unusual buzzing sound of the Gyil which is achieved by drawing the net of spider cocoons over holes in the resonating gourds.

The builder "hangs" the 14 wooden bars over the frame to allow them to vibrate freely. Most Gyils are tuned in the pentatonic scale.
