Laurie Berkner('s) Congas!

I know someone who says it should be a goal to learn something new every day.

So, in that spirit, and thanks to the Laurie Berkner/"Farm Song"-related clarifications of Deb in SF and Katy L, here you go (thanks, Wikipedia!):

Bongo drum: Percussion instrument made up of two small drums attached to each other

Conga: Tall, narrow, single-headed Cuban drum of African origin, probably derived from the Congolese Makuta drums.

This is my favorite factoid: "Someone who plays the bongos is called a bongocero." "Bongocero" sounds cooler than "conguero."

Bongocero. It's my new favorite word.
