The dunun (DOO-noon) family of drums (aka djun djun or dun dun) provides the rhythmic and melodic base for the most West African ensemble drumming. This family of double-headed, cylindrical, rope-tension drums consists of the doundoumba (largest), sangban (medium), and kenkeni (smallest). Our drums can be bought separately or as a set.

These dunun are part of the Classic line of imported drums from Africa Heartwood Project, and feature:

  • Average Sizes: Dundumba 15"x28" - Sangban 12"x24" - Kenkeni 10"x22"
  • Pre-tuned and tested before shipping, comes to you ready to play
  • Solid one-piece construction using Mansonia, a legally harvested hardwood abundant in West Africa
  • Wood treated with at least 4 coats of coconut oil to hydrate and beautify wood
  • New African cow skin on both sides, hair left on to mellow the sound and for protection
  • New, extra-strong synthetic rope, long lasting and durable
  • Crown rings wrapped in cloth for long rope life
  • Each bearing edge coated with wax to protect and seal the wood
