I looooooooooove Bolokonondo and because it's very different it could be a nice one to learn.
I don't think any of them are more important than others. Try listening to them and see which one you really like the sound of. If you really like a rhythm it will motivate you to learn it.

There is Gbada Ney (little Gbada) which is played usually after Kon (Dunungbe) to change into another rhythm. Then there is Gbada (the normal one) and finally Gbada La Ji (not sure of spelling). Gbada La Ji is a little selection of phrases which is always played to finish a dununba fete. Not sure where you can learn that though. I might post some recordings. I was thinking about suggesting Gbada for the next rhythm of the month.
