Balafon ~ Joko's World
By Cultural Infusion (Int) Pty Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Joko’s Balafon is an app that celebrates beautiful wooden tune percussion. Featuring 3 instruments; the Balafon and Gyil of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Marimba, the national musical instrument of Guatemala.
Through game based challenges you can learn to play songs that stretch across Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso and Ghana and over to Guatemala. Retrace a musical journey across Africa and on to the Americas.
The Balafon is one of the instruments of the Mande Jeli, otherwise known as Griots. Through our unique guidebook let us introduce you to the descendants of a tradition of bards dating back to the ancient advanced empires of Ghana, Mali and Songhay. These master artists record and recite histories and retell them through song.
