Rhythms "to make women dance" with the drum called "Gui dounou": a water drum or calabash-drum made of two large hemispheric calabashes full of water and set on the ground side by side. The drummer strikes the calabashes with other spoon-shaped calabashes. This drum is supported by two other wood and membrane drums.
