The music of the African Djembe drum is an African trademark. Artisans in West Africa hand-carve these lovely djembe drums from a single piece of hollowed Tweneboa wood. The goatskin top is stretched, taught, and held in place by long pieces of braided nylon and cotton cord. Each drum is fully functional and adorned with beautiful hand-carved details.
The Djembe drums are professional quality instruments that serve as astounding home decorations as well. These drums are popular in reggae and other cultural music productions. In West Africa, nearly all ceremonies are accompanied by the timeless and distinctive melody of drums.
