"Dunun" (or however you want to spell it) is an onomatopoeic word. (The word sounds like the thing it names.) Given that, it wouldn't surprise me at all that there are African drums somewhere that are (correctly) called "djun djun". But the Malinke version doesn't belong in that category.e2c wrote:Duga - I'd bet money on the Olatunji connection.
