Burned Balsa Wood and Bottle Cap Tambourine

Swahili Modern

BK-09I

  • Artisans in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, handcraft these unique tambourines by encasing recycled metal bottle cap zills in a lightweight balsa wood frame. A great gift for music lovers or collectors of world instruments, each tambourine sports a burned design, and is completely one-of-a-kind.

    Size: 6.25"L x 5"W. Sold singly in assorted designs. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly. This is not a professional instrument. 

  • An artisan co-op of young men in Burkina Faso, West Africa, create hand-crafted instruments from gourds and recycled materials including coffee tins. Frequently the artisans are also musicians themselves, and they take great care in producing instruments of exceptional quality and beauty.
