The Zulu Harmonicon (shown in front and rear view) is also known as the Marimba. Each of the ten bars of wood have a gourd attached, which acts as a resonator. The instrument is played with sticks tipped with balls of rubber. The use of this instrument is very widespread and received increased popularity with the development of the xylophone, which uses metal keys instead of wooden ones. Date: 1929
