Alan Tauber says:

The Krin is from Guinee and it is played in Mali as well. From the Toma
people of Southern Guinea. Made of a white wood sometimes, but most often a
harder wood that will hold up to the constant contact with the sticks.

Can’t see the original comments to which you were responding but I can
imagine. I’m white and I’ve been studying djembe for the last 12 years
because I love it. Is’t it funny how the culture police are also always
white (or at least not african)

djembeweaver says:

Nice sounding krins. Usually they sound rubbish but these are nicely carved
and tuned. Are they from Guinea?

Baba Throbule says:

I love the Krin but I think the Dumb Dumb presenting the video is a rank
amateur. He has the knack of making a great instrument sound boring.

Vladimir Cilokin says:

Err because perhaps he find it beautiful? Strange question.

Natty Dread says:

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong but as far as I know Krin is from Mali…

FLpolo says:

im sorry but, CAN I SE SOME BLACK PEOPLE DOING THE THINGS OF THEIR
CULTURE!! im sorry but it’s just more authentic i can feel like im
listening to someone who actually “knows” HIS instrument. everytime i type
in something dealing with african culture a white guy pops up: the lute,
drums, the kora, even dreadlocks! whats up with that? i think we need to
start embracing or roots moor (pun intended)
