Our Ghana Series Bougarabou Shells are hand-carved in Ghana by expert woodworkers. The timber used is medium-density Twenaboa. The Ghanaian interior carving style is modern and angular. As a result, Ghanaian bougarabou tend to have wide heads and big dynamic range. Deep bass and rich, melodic tones are the signature sounds of a Ghana bougarabou. Carvers add their own artistic flair to the external carvings. For example, some use traditional Adinkra symbology. On the other hand, some carvers prefer abstract geometric designs. These are the same shells we use to build our Ghana Series Bougarabou. Each shell comes with top and bottom rings to fit.
