Motherland Quality Bougarabous                              The heartbeat: a powerful force

The bougarabous listed on this page are hand carved in Ivory Coast from two wood types, iroko (milicia excelsa) and lenke (afzelia africnana), two premium African drum woods. We assembled our drums with thick cowhide and use strong low stretch tension cord that allows the skins to be tightly pulled. The bougarabou sound is earthy and melodic similar to conga with popping slaps & solid tones with the addition of a strong bass resonance similar to a djembe.
