A kontigi or kuntigi is a one- or two-stringed lute used in Hausa music, used primarily in northern Nigeria and Niger, but also used in Hausa minorities in Benin, Ghana, Burkina Faso and Cameroon. It is also found among Islamized peoples throughout West Africa (see Xalam). The best-known player of the kontigi is Dan Maraya.
