The Bugarabou

By September 17, 2013Education

A beautiful drum which came from the Jola peoples of Senegal and Gambia

How can you tell a djembe from a bougarabou? Firstly, the shape. Bougarabous have a V shape, whereas djembes have more of an hour glass figure. Secondly the skin – bougarabous are skinned with cow, whereas djembes are usually skinned with goat

A good bougarabou features lovely rich tones and bass notes
