The bara (also called bendré) is a spherical drum with a body made from a calabash, used in West Africa (mainly Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and Mali). His simple head is made of goatskin.

To make the drum, a dried calebash is cut at one end and a single head made of goat skin is stretched over the opening.

The instrument is often used to accompany balafon.

Our Baradununs are made with very thick calabashes to avoid deformation under the pressure of the skin. Sold by pair or by unit. We propose the "bara ba" and "bara den" respectively used for solo and accompaniment. The baras are tuned using a black rubber pellet. The larger the pellet, the lower the note of the instrument.
