I work with gourds as percussion instruments, but your collection is so beautiful, they're difficult to look at. I love working with gourds and this is the best use of them I've EVER seen. You put my sekeres to shame. Is there any particular reason why the gourds come from Senegal and not an American farm?

Again thank You! :-) Last year was in Senegal and I brought some round gourd from there. Thats why all my cannonball gourds are senegalese. Now I am trying to get new gourd from States but I have some difficulties. Hope I will have them soon.

Thank You. I think that maybe I need bushell cause usually cannonball are too small for me. But I will check it. Thanks!! :-)
