They both are made of a large gourd, fishing lines, and hardwood neck. N'goni has 8 strings and a pentatonic scale. Kora, on the other hand, has 21 strings and diatonic scale. Daouda spent time with his friends and neighbors whose parents were N'goni players while growing up in Burkina Faso. He and his friends learned to build the instrument as a mean to own their toys.
