It is theorized that this instrument originated around 500 AD with a group of Malay-Polynesian peoples who migrated to Africa. From there, it spread throughout Eastern Africa and to Southern Asia, where versions with metal keys are particularly popular in Indonesia in Gamelan orchestras. It is played with wooden or rubber mallets and either chromatically or diatonically tuned, depending on the country of origin.
