The MEINL Bougarabou is proudly made in the tradition of the Jola people of southern Senegal. The classic bougarabou features an elongated goblet-shaped body carved from Mahagony Wood. A bougarabou can be played with traditional conga or djembe techniques, and makes a rich complement within drum ensembles.
