Dundun for sale - Mali kenkeni dunun drum

The Mali kenkeni dundun is the best dundun drum for a dundunfola who appreciates the acoustic performance of a top of the line instrument, simply designed.

In the dunun drums family, the kenkeni plays at the highest pitch and is generally used as a metronome in simple rhythms.

Each Mali kenkeni is conceived in the purest tradition of the Malian craftsmen who combine expertise and traditional skills.

Melina (white wood, bumu) is a slightly less dense wood than those traditionally used in the fabrication of djembes from Mali while offering the same acoustic quality.

It is preferred by djembefolas who prioritize weight over sturdiness, appreciated by those who play standing up or who have to transport their instrument.

  • SogratefultoDavid 06. 5/5

    I can not tell you how grateful I am for the African percussionist. My husband and I took a huge risk in ordering an expensive set of dunun drums at an unknown company in France. Yet, they were true professionals in every sense of the word. David, the owner, kept in constant touch with me, soothing my fears and getting them immediately after the order, so the follow-up was done immediately.

    David, the owner was incredibly nice and our beautiful drums arrived less than a week after being ordered from France to the US and we are now enjoying it endlessly.

    Thank you really David for showing me, there are really honest and wonderful people still in the world !!!! Kerrie & Pardon Kanda
