Designed for outdoor installation, fun and colourful conga drums will bring African rhythms to your playground. Thanks to their robust construction and durability, they can be fixed directly into the ground.

The set of congas includes a trio of drums in small, medium and large sizes. Allowing numerous players to enjoy making music at the same time. Different sized drums will also produce a different tone. Not only do they look and sound great, congas can be the perfect introduction to music and a fantastic tool to develop a great sense of rhythm. They are popular with education as well as music therapy and are suitable for musicians of all ages.

This paragraph is taken from Percussion Play. I think sums up their love of music and their instrument range perfectly –

Music is found in every known culture, past and present and has evolved to become a fundamental component of human life. Differences in age, gender, ethnic or linguistic background have no place in music and obstacles present in other activities defined by motor and mental ability are absent where music is concerned. Music is naturally the most universal language at our disposal and everyone has the potential to make music.
