description still too vague... maybe register on this forum and ask directly. There are a lot of knowledgeable Africa percussion people there:

I believe that the Dunun is what you are looking for.

I think you are talking about the Doundouns. There are three Doundouns that I'm familiar with.

Doundounba: Largest of the three doundouns
Sangban: Middle drum
Kenkeni: Smallest of the three

Old thread but I hope it helps.
