caught the very tail end of a TV performance last night. Reggae type, perhaps African band. Their name sounded like ACKURO?
if you happened to see it do you know the instrunents they were playing?
The "guitars" looked like weird big round bellied bazoukas? with about 10 strings per side. They were played with the belly of the unit against their belly, strings up and there were side handles. The unit was played with both thumbs. for the 2 minutes I saw of the performance the sound was very buzzy: harp sounding as well as guitar sounding (probably internally amplified?
cheers
