The 9" bugarabu can stand alone as a solo hand drum, but really complements any type of hand drum ensemble, with clear, loud tones that work well for low djembe parts, or as quinto in Afro-Cuban. If you need something a little more portable or for use in settings with children, this drum will be ideal. Backed up by our satisfaction guarantee this drum features, in addition to the standard bugarabu construction: * medium thick cow skin, wet shaved for comfort and improved sound * versatile size works for adults or children * lighter weight and more portable than larger bugarabu (World Percussion USA is the ONLY authorized seller of Africa Heartwood Project instruments on this marketplace.
