I'm pretty new to West African music. I hear these instruments often when I listen to it music but I don't know what they are!

1. Pitch-shiftable percussion, sounds a bit like a pot! Able to play very quick tremolo-style

Excerpt: Soungalo Coulibaly's Jarafoli (the beginning part) https://open.spotify.com/track/2YEyv9hAROhqdPKkkRC3Zh

2. Half way between a kenkeni and a djembe. Sounds more like a kenkeni to me but has a distinctive other sound that doesn't sound like a muted note, rather a bass note:

Excerpt: Mamady Keita's Su (the very first instrument) https://open.spotify.com/track/3QzVvwvMKE9dCrr1n0JP8l
