TRADITIONAL DJEMBES


The traditional djembes I offer here, were made in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Each djembe is different, hand carved with one piece of wood, with geometric decoration. The drumhead is made with goat or cow skin, and is tuned with a single interlaced rope of great resistance, with the help of iron rings.

These djembes have been made by expert African musicians. They have used the best materials. They have choosen very carefully appropriate thickness skins, without fat or fissures.
