The Djembe is a very social instrument, originally from Western Africa.
Djembe Drummers do not traditionally play music for people to simply sit back and listen to. Instead, they create rhythm for people to dance, sing, clap, or work to. A rhythm is rarely played as a performance, but is participatory: musicians, dancers, singers, and onlookers all join in and become a part of the performance .
We have a range of Hand Carved African style Djembe Drumse from mini 15 cm high djembes up to 25 cm Starter Djembes.
Our mini 15 cm high djembe has a 9 cm wide head and is suitable for young children or as an ornament.
They are handmade in Bali by our wonderful fair trade instrument makers. They are made from sustainably managed mahogany which is hand carved with a geometric design, the skins are natural.
As each Djembe is handmade the colour and the designs do vary slightly, so you are getting a unique Djembe!
