Gandayina Xylophone Music of Ghana By SK Kakraba Lobi CD Sk Kalraba was born in the northwest region of Ghana. He plays the xylophone known as gyil, a 14-bar instrument with the bars suspended over gourds. Giyils have a characteristic buzzing sound and most are tuned in the pentatonic scale. The xylophone is important in NW Ghanaian music and especially played for funerals. It can be played by a soloist or with a group of drums, singers, dancers, and flute players. The West African xylophone was the inital inspiration for the creation of Orff instruments. The pieces on this CD are a combination of traditional pieces SK has arranged and new pieces he has composed. Some pieces include musicians on Atenteben flute, flute, gankogui bell, rattle, and drums.
