Distribution of non-traditional carillons
in Africa and the Middle East

The two grids on this page display graphically the distribution of non-traditional carillons in Africa and the Middle East according to the weight/pitch of either the heaviest or the lightest bell and the number of bells in each instrument.  Both grids are laid out as follows:
