The conga is a tall, narrow, single-headed Cuban drum of African
origin, probably derived from the Congolese Makuta drums. Although
ultimately derived from African drums made from hollowed logs, the
Cuban conga is staved, like a barrel. These drums were probably
made from salvaged barrels originally.
They were used both in Afro-Caribbean religious music and as the principal instrument in Rumba Congas are now very common in Latin music including salsa music as well as many other forms of American popular music
Modern congas have a staved wooden or fiberglass shell, and a screw-tensioned drumhead. They are usually played in sets of two to four with the fingers and palms of the hand. Typical congas stand approximately 75 cm from the bottom of the shell to the head.
The drums may be played while seated. Alternatively, the drums may be mounted on a rack or stand to permit the player to play while standing.
