​Cameroon is a country partially on the West coast of Africa that is bordered by Nigeria. The name of the country originates from the portugese Rio dos Camarões, which sailors, for its abundance of prawns and crayfish, called the Wouri River when they sailed into it in 1472.

According to Wikipedia, "The country is well known for its native styles of music, particularly makossa and bikutsi."

Here are some image details from a Cameroon drum we saw at Majestical Lips (4600 NE 2nd Avenue) in the Buena Vista neighborhood just north of the Design District and south of the heart of Little Haiti.
