Doundoun Drums

The collective name for a family of West African bass drums, the Dunun (or doundoun, dundun, djun djun) are the heart beat and time keepers of the djembe chorus. 

Also affectionately regarded as the grand-daddy of the kit drum for it’s simple isolating rhythmic and bell patterns, the doundoun collection is made up of a Kenkeni (the smallest, carrying the highest pitch and holding the rhythm together with a simple pattern), the Sangban (producing a medium tone, typically carrying a more complex part that defines the rhythm), and the Dununba (the largest of the three, adding deep bass with widely spaced notes and longer cyclical patterns).
