Gourd Banza Kit


Everything you need to make your own mini gourd banza—a folk music instrument with roots in Haitian history.

You can put this kit together and be playing in no time at all, or you can make a detailed project out of it. Take your time to shape the neck, sand the grain, and apply a nice finish. Build an instrument that’s truly yours.

Makes a great gift for children and students alike. Pass down your passion for craftsmanship to someone you love. Create a hands-on activity that teaches kids about another culture. Share an experience that inspires new interest in music, carpentry, and folklore.

Don’t forget to add the peghead scroll to your purchase- it fits on this peghead too.
