DK Bongos are bongo-like controllers intended for use with certain Donkey Kongvideo games for the Nintendo GameCube. The DK Bongos are a pair of bongos, both shaped like a classic Donkey Kong barrel with a rubber drumskin fastened on top. The controller also has a built-in microphone to detect clapping.
In Japan, the controller is called the "TaruKonga" (or "TaruConga") controller. The name is a multilayered pun, combining "Taru" (the Japanese word for "barrel"), "Kon" or "Con" (a suffix used by Namco when naming their original peripherals, such as the "GunCon", or the "TaTaCon"), Konga (or Conga), as well as "Kong" from Donkey Kong.
Although it is only intended for use with particular games, it is compatible with all GameCube games, as well as Wii and Wii U games that are compatible with the GameCube controller; the left drum acts as the A Button and the right drum acts as the B Button.
