African Music - Metal Reeds

Here are the metal reed "box" instruments: the diatonic, push-pull or blow-suck European instruments: the melodeon (or button accordion), Anglo-German concertina and the harmonica (or mouth harp). They show how skilfully Africans have adapted them for their own style of music.
