Fida Finds – Balafon Music

Continuing with our random “finds” on Fridays (Fida = Friday), here is a demonstration of skill on the West African balafon or xylophone, an instrument played throughout the region.

And from our photo archive, a Mmofra Foundation member trying out the xylophone at one of our sessions last year!
