Everyone has their favourite part. Typically djembe gets all the noise, but I was wondering what everyone's favourite part to play on the dunun is - that part that you could play all night if you had to.

My vote goes to the Sangban part of Dibon.

any dununba part to any dununba rhythm. then sangban for any dununba after that.

plenty of variations and echauffements to be played with someone who's tight on their dunun stuff.

edit to add: mendiani as well.

The dunumba for Sinte is so cool - it's really challenging and I'm no good at it yet, but I love to play it.

Also the kinkine for djole - it's just that little bit tricky - makes it fun!

tough call. lately i've been playing 3 duns ballet style - quite enjoyable and much like being a one man dunun section. i still love playing any of the dunun separately, and hearing all the bells together. i really enjoy the different textures that each dunun imparts, and the combined melody they make. so i don't mind which i play. often i prefer the sangban and dununba parts of rhythms because there is good scope of variation there. especially with mendiani and the dunun rhythms which are really addictive, as are the khassonke dunun patterns and variations.

Sangban or dununba on virtually any rhythm, though i have a real fondness for dununbas. (having spent some time working on a couple of them this past spring.)

At this point, I'm very new to duns in general, so virtually anything will keep me entertained! The rhythm I've been working on lately (sangban): balakulanjan. But I'm also spending a lot of time playing my drums ballet-style, because I need to get a feel for using two sticks - and, of course, because it's fun! :D

Hi ! I'm really enjoying learning the dununs part of Kuku. Also I'm trying to move and drum to Macru and Sorsonet. It is such a miracle when I can keep my beat and move my feet ! Thanks to Colleen Hendrick and Kris Kimmel at Bush Mango, I actually have dreams of getting there.

Hey Shasha -

Were you at Famoudou's workshops at Bush Mango? I came in from Canada. Give a big shoutout to Kris and Colleen at Bush Mango for me.

Keep up the work on the dununs. It gets easier... until you get to the Dunungbas. :lol:

Sadly I had to miss Famoudou's workshop. Two reasons: first, didn't feel ready in spite of Kris' encouragement; and, second, I was still paying off one of Wula's excellent drums and felt strapped for money. Hope to meet you next time, and I will say hi for you Monday when I meet with Colleen and Tuesday when I see Kris in his class.
