I visited Senegal back in the late '80s. I can't play it but here's a photo. It's 25" long from the top of the neck to the short legs under the bowl. I did a quick photoshop job to combine the image of the whole instrument and a close up of the bowl to show the cowry shell ornamentation, the handles and the strings are visible. It also has a couple of horn ornamentations on the back of the bowl. One is visible protruding from the back.

Top notch! keithbvadu2 Nov 2022 #1
