plani bala

(5 headed drum)

Plani Bala

The  five-headed   drum  consists  of  four   small Melina wood djembes  attached  around  a  larger djembe.
It is only played by hand, held with a strap, and tuned up or down the same way a regular single Djembe is.
Its four  small  drums are each tuned to produce a  sound  distinct  from the others.  It originated  amoung the Guerze ethnic group, in the  forest regions of Guinea (West Africa).
