  • Description

    Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.231. From available documentation: a nameless old man of Mbuti type made a board zither for the purpose and played four different sections, of which one or two were meant to demonstrate the scale which he carefully adjusted from time to time. A curious mixture between percussion and plucking with a plectrum.
