At BaraGnouma we are meticulous in our choice of wood used to craft balafons.

The wood must have been dried for several years, and be free from cracks or knots. We allow the keys further time to gently smoke and dry out, whilst ensuring that we don't heat them excessively thus weakening the wood.

Each key is finished with great care, time being taken to file, sand and polish each side resulting in a neat and even finish.

The calebashes also undergo a special treatment leaving them completely hollow, and giving them a characteristic green colour.

The keys and calebashes are thus mounted on a sturdy frame ​​of iroko wood tied with cowhide. Further, we use a special system to suspend the keys on a rope drawn heavily on both sides of the frame. This ensures that the strike of the beaters on the keys is slightly dampened and the resulting sound is soft and clear, neither too sharp nor too dry.

We offer our instruments tuned to F, G, A, C, D but all pentatonic keys are available on request.
