Hi Bernard !

Your request is quite uncommon.  Usually the different staves in a
score have the same number of measures...
Have you considered using \repeat percent ..., for example ?

The easiest way is to use ChoirStaff instead od StaffGroup.

I suppose it is maybe because you defined your own "custom staves" or
probably because you used \addlyrics within your variable definitions
and not within the \score block.

I defined DjembeILyrics (and so on) variables and add
  \new Lyrics ...
within your \score block and this problem vanished!

I also increased your "indent" value since it was too small to display
"Sang Bang" instrument name completely.
I also replaced your "r1" by "R1".

See the attached file.
Let me know if there are still problems (I use 2.13.18).
