Description

Oghene is a type of long hollow metal gong/bell made and played in the Ibo part of Nigeria (Oghene can also be the name of one type of traditional music from the same region). It is typically a double bell, but we also have single bell options. The sound is generally a little less ringy than other African bells but varies bell to bell depending on slight differences in metal thickness.
