The conga or Cuban tumbadora is a single-headed Latin American percussion instrument usually played with the hands and fingers. The carnival rhythm of the same name derived its name from the drum. The conga features heavily in Latin music such as salsa and merengue as well as various other styles from around the world. Typically constructed of either wood or fiberglass with a bolt tensioned rim and head. Conga are usually played in sets of two or four drums varying in sizes and often alongside bongo drums. The drums can either be played sitting down with the drum between the legs or more commonly the congas are mounted on a rack or stand. Players incorporate many different techniques using both open hand, palm and fingers.
