The Bolonba (Bolomba) is not a traditional rhythm from Guinea. It is based on a rhythm played on the instrument (M’)Bolon. It is an instrument made of a calabash, with a stick mounted on it and holding 3 (or 4) strings. It is usually used as a bass accompany in melodic pieces. The “National Ensemble Instrumental” of Guinea uses it in many pieces. Arafan Touré, has transferred a piec to the rhythm on drums with different variations in time.
