SEKELEBE / TEHOUN
Tall and tuneful conga-like drums of the Ogu/Egun tribe
(a subgroup of the Yoruba), used by many Yoruba drum ensembles, sometimes referred to as Igbin drums.
They have a warm tone, clean slap and good bass response, due to the drum being raised up by its carved wooden feet.
They are played with hands and/or stick and are often painted in a variety of colours.
The full set includes Jipri as the support drums
