The ‘Mini Kenkeni – 12in diameter, 35cm high, bamboo’ is a super double-ended Dundun-style drum that is brilliant for young children due to its size. This one is our third to smallest Kenkeni but is also good for any age. It is smaller than the Kenkeni found in the ‘Dundun Set – Large – bamboo’ set and is approximately 30cm in diameter and 35cm deep.
These drums are made from fast-growing bamboo and are really tough. They can be used outdoors providing they are kept reasonably dry. The skins are extra tough goatskin and will withstand years and years of use. It is extremely robust and comes with a good, soft beater.
The drum itself is very tactile and makes a satisfying thud when played.
We have included this Kenkeni in our ‘Drums ‘n’ Eggs Kit’ collection.
N.B. For SEN settings: Please put a note with your order to indicate that it is needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.
It is very satisfying to play the ‘Mini Kenkeni – 12in diameter, 35cm high, bamboo’, as you just hit it with the beaters provided.
You can play it by standing it on its end and just playing the uppermost surface in a ‘Ballet’ drumming style, or you can put it on its side and play both ends in a ‘Rural’ drumming style.
As it has a handle, you can also pick it up with one hand and play it with the other.
The traditional way of playing this drum is more technical but this drum is ideal for young children right up to adults, to explore in their own ways.
These Dundun types of drum are incredibly robust and will take a hard beating.
