The N'Goni is usually executed by the Dioula people of Burkina Faso. The instrument is called Kamale Ngoni, (also known as the more traditional hunter to the Donso Ngoni 6-string) although the Ngoni Kamele is a more modern version ("Kamele" means Young).

Usually the thumb covering the strings pitch more record while the index fingers touching you address only the most acute, the remaining fingers to hold instruments of small arms to the wooden sides of each row of strings.
Originally these instruments did not have pins, but adjusted terms mast into strips of leather, which was very difficult to pitch it.
We have adapted a simple set of wooden pegs for easy tuning. The typical tuning for a N'goni is from the most serious to the most acute the following tonal progression: D, F, G, A, C, D, F, G, etc. Another typical tuning is B, D, E, F#, A, B, D, E, etc. We currently manufacture 10 and 12 string kamele Ngoni (with wood or guitar plugs) with microphone and case.
