Djembe, doumbek & darbuka, djun djuns, ashiko, conga, frame drum & bendir, tar, bodhrán, bongos, marimba, steel pan, tambora, glockenspiel, and a bunch of other hand-held percussion instruments (shekere, maracas, claves, tambourine, ganza, cabasa, cowbells & agogos, guiro, castanets, cymbals, singing bowl, water drum, chimes, hand bells, etc.). And when all else fails, pretty much anything that will make noise (i.e., tree branches, hiking polls, books, pots & pans, silverware - backpackers can get pretty creative when they've been in the woods for a while).
Yep - a bunch in CT (New Haven, Meriden, Glastonbury, South Windsor, Manchester), a couple in MA (Boston & Springfield), plus a couple of different drum festivals, a couple of Native American pow wows, and a bunch of long-distance backpacker gatherings.
Djembe (hand-made, from Guinea), and a few small hand-held percussion instruments.
So happy to see another drum circle up in the northern half of the state!
