An instrument with mainly African roots (ashantis, bantoues, fons, yorubas), the conga is a drum which exists in several sizes:

  • the quinto (or primero) is the conga with the highest pitch, playing solos
  • the conga (or segundo) is the medium-size conga
  • the tumba (or salidor) is the widest conga with the deepest sound
  • the tumbadora is a version of the tumba conga with a very deep sound
  • the super tumba is a rare version of the tumba conga with an even deeper sound

We offer congas of very high quality: solid, cut from a single very dense piece of wood, offering exceptionally high quality sound.

Their timbre is softer than that of a conga constructed from several pieces of wood or molded in synthetic fiber.

Mounted with wrought iron hoops and adjustable steel screws, these congas are built by Malian artisans using traditional materials and ancestral skills.
