    Any information on this hand made instrument would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea what it’s made out of other than top of drum appears to be animal hide. Is it an African instrument. It measures 13.5” long the drum is 7” by 6”. Have no idea of age either. Thank you very much

      Another nice find, a bolon from most likely Guinea or Mali.
