Djun Djun for Hire

A djun-djun is the generic name for a family of West African bass drums that was developed alongside the djembe in the Mande drum ensemble. It is not to be confused with the dundun, the Yoruba name of the West African talking drum. There are different sizes of djun djuns, ranging from 25 to 60 cm. Basing on the size, construction technique and tuning, there are different names for each type of djun djun. Some of the most often used names are Dunun, konkoni, kenkeni, sangban, dununba, djeli-dun, etc.
