At Kandu, we’re always searching for ways to create new sounds, and one of our most surprising – and satisfying – results has been this unique instrument. The eight-sided cabonga drum provides a full-bodied sound that resonates throughout any space, defying the walls to hold it in. Grasp it between your legs, play it like a darbuka, slide it onto a stand and beat it like a bongo – you’ll discover as you go. The cabonga has an Afro-South American character, with bell-like highs and an ocean-deep bass, and comes in multiple house colors, so you can choose the one that matches your favorite mood.
Quite possibly the most versatile instrument we’ve ever designed, the cajonga has a fun and funky sound that somehow fits whatever kind of music you want to play. The cousin of an African conga drum, its inside snare wire invites you to use it as part of an ethnic drum kit, while its size lets you grasp it between your legs, play it like a darbuka, or slide it onto a stand and get your bongo on. Ideal for travelers and stage performers alike, this little drum, with its tabla highs, congo bass and sizzling snare mechanism, packs a mighty sound that carries way beyond its compact size.
