DRUMS OF THE WORLD

Gourd drum Burkina Faso



















Bendré - gourd drum Burkina Faso
Gourd-based drums are found in a number of West African countries, primarily in Mali, Burkina Faso, Côte d Ivoire, Ghana, and Benin.
The Bendre drum is played during the enthronement of Mossi chiefs and also during religious events and festivals.
In the past, during tribal wars, the bendre was the medium to relay news to all the Mossi in the empire.
