William Bullock, an antiquarian, collector and traveller, commented in 1808 in the companion guide to his museum in Liverpool : 'when the slave piano is played by a skilful hand it produces an agreeable harmony'.
These two Sanza are both used to create music to accompany songs and are from the Democratic republic of the Congo, the Teke and Kongo peoples.
