Bongo drums are actually two separate drums that are connected close together for easy playing. One drum is always larger than the other. The smaller, higher pitched drum is known as the male or "macho" and the larger, lower pitched drum the female of "hembra". that is how the bongo drums produce their recognizable sound.

Bongo drums migrated west and became an important part of the music in the capital of Havana just after the 1900's. Many bands used bongos and other sizes of drums (and percussion instruments), but the bongos were often a featured instrument as the sound is higher pitched and they are easy to move around.
