Here is a link to Cowbell Magazine. I got it in an email and I was curious as to what kind of magazine it was. It is a music magazine. What caught my eye and I thought you guys might find interesting is the picture on page 10. This is about an Indie music label called "Sub Pop" and apparently they are spinning off a new label "New Ambiance" getting in to the world music genre. The picture is of a band called "Ngoni ba" and the leader is a musician named Bassekou Kouyate. Getting back to what caught my eye were the instruments. These were homemade instruments and they are called "ngoni." Which is seen by some as the ancestor of the banjo. If anyone is interested in seeing or reading this article about a homemade instrument that has been around and is still around today, you might enjoy this article.
