ngɔni: donso ngɔni, kamalen ngɔni, jeli ngɔni

Depending on the context, ngɔni may refer to one of these three instruments:

  • donso ngɔni -- six-stringed lute-harp from Wassoulou, West Africa, traditionally played by hunters
  • kamalen ngɔni -- modern derivative of the donso ngɔni, it comes with more strings and/or a different size
  • jeli ngɔni -- four-stringed lute from West Africa, traditionally played by griots

Warning, ngoni is often misused to designate any instrument close to one of the above, and conversely!
