Large 12” African Bougarabou that is proudly made in the tradition of the Jola people of southern Senegal. This classic instrument features an elongated goblet-shaped body carved from single log of plantation-grown mahagony wood – and the body is deeper and narrower than the djembe. The Bougarabou is carefully shaped for a perfect bearing edge and proper interior contours and fitted with a hand-selected cow skin head. This is important for its proper full rounded sound with crisp bright accents. It has intricately hand carved designs and has the traditional Mali-Weave tuning system with pre-stretched HTP rope, and 22 vertical runners which are 5mm thick. It can be played with traditional conga or djembe techniques. Height: 24”/609.6 mm. Matte Brown colour.
