Here’s the next installment to my
project: an authentic cowhide bongo made in the
mountain province of Benguet, Philippines. I bought
it on the day of my college graduation so it’s
really special to me. Tap with care.
If you’ve ever had a cowhide bongo you would know
that they don’t have much resonance like the conga,
instead they’re very natural-sounding, more earthy.
It’s great for world and ethnic music styles. So if
you’re making the soundtrack for the next Pocahontas
sequel, maybe this can come handy.
Otobongo is available to download as a freeware VST
instrument for Windows PC.
