      Description

      donso ngɔni

      1. Description better suits (future) jeli ngɔni (see INST-450) rather than this one.
        Alternative: Six-stringed lute-harp from Wassoulou, West Africa. Traditionally played by hunters. Its resonator is made of three quarters of an empty calabash covered by a stretched animal skin for the sound table.
        (It seems difficult to do a shorter description. It distinguishes from both kamalen ngɔni and kora.)
      2. Missing relationships (improvement):
        1. type of: lute (or new lute-harp instead?)
        2. type of: harp (or new lute-harp instead?)
        3. related to: kora
        4. origin: although Wassoulou is not an MB Area entity, it is at the crossing of Mali, Niger and Guinea which may be referred to instead
      3. Inaccurate relationship to kamalen ngɔni: It should probably be of type derivations rather than related to.
