A double headed barrel shaped drum with cow skin. Dunun (djun djun, doun doun) are bass drums and are played vertically with sticks or horizontally with a single stick, the other hand playing an attached bell. They are traditionally (most often) played as a set of three and are called the dununba (or doun-doun) (large), sangban (medium) and kenkeni (small). One person may play a set or each drum may be played individually. Traditionally accompanies the djembe to provide the bass and foundation of the rhythm. This form originated amongst the Malinke people of central West Africa.
