Players of balafo during a funeral. The balafo is a kind of xylophone, it is composed of wood laths with various sizes and thicknesses, assembled on a frame. Calabashes pierced of holes and laid out below are used as resonance chambers. The laths cooked in an oven, will contribute to produce very pure and musical sonorities.
