Have you considered that bodhrans might just be banjos with really short strings, super or otherwise?

And I just realized that "banjo" would be pronounced "banho" in Spanish, and could easily be confused with the word "ba~no". If you are playing banjo at a Hispanic folk festival you might want to be very careful in your pronunciation. Also if you are telling folks how old you are or how long the group has been together -- it's easy to muff it and say "Tengo viente anos" or "Tenemos siete anos" instead of "Tenemos siete a~nos" or "Tengo viente a~nos." That li'l ol' tilde is right important.
