West African drums are not tuned to an objective note, but to a subjective pitch.

In other words…there is no right or wrong sound! 🎵
Djembes, bougarabou and dunun are tuned by weaving knots into the vertical ropes. Each knot increases the tension on the hide, raising the pitch of the drum. 🪘

The most common tuning technique is called the Mali Weave. 🇲🇱
