As a gift to a musician friend, I recently purchased a Goji calabash piano. The both of us were extremely impressed with the craftmanship, detail, color and sound of the instrument. Mr. Alhassan is a wonderful artist, and it is a pleasure to eye, the mind and the soul to look at and hear this wonderful instrument. I wish him much success.
