Kigonki - Lulu model - Bb Minor / HandPan


Ref. N6492 - IC

Kigonki - Lulu model - Bb Minor The Kigonki "Lulu" is a top quality steel tongue drum with 8 notes on both sides of the instrument. From the family of "Steel Tongue Drum", the Kigonki is a completely intuitive melodic percussion instrument that can be played by anyone, even without any prior musical knowledge. Made entirely by hand in Spain, this high-quality instrument consists of a steel drum in which are cut out sound blades and can be played either directly with the hands or with suitable sticks . This model "Lulu" presents a unique tuning concept with its 8 notes cut on each side of the instrument (16 blades total), which offer exceptional sustain, beat and harmonic richness. Indeed, its 2 faces are tuned according to the same range of Si Major, but with a very slight offset between them, which generates a tremolo effect and significantly increases the volume of the instrument. This acoustic response is immediate and totally hypnotic! The "Lulu" illustrates perfectly the benefit of such a subtle "disagreement", which manages to create new sounds, similar to harmonized voices emanating from the body itself. Thus, it has not only 8 notes, but rather multiple frequencies, whose interactions between the different layers of harmonics inspire fluctuation and movement, and generate a "cosmic" sound. In addition, the instrument benefits from a very neat, changing and colorful aesthetic, unique to each Kigonki: a pleasure for the eyes as much as for the ears, which participates in the joy to play this instrument of a very high quality . Tuned to an Bb Minor pentatonic scale: Bb - Db -Eb- F - Ab - Bb -C- Db.
