The bougarabous listed on this page are hand carved in Ivory Coast from two wood types; iroko (milicia excelsa) and lenke (afzelia africnana), two traditional African drum woods. We assembled our drums with cowhide and use strong tension cord that allows the skin 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.
