Professional African Djembe drum, made with cowskin, 13", or 33 cm head, 67 cm height.
This beautiful djembe drum has a fantastic tonal range, from a piercing slap to a deep resounding bass. They manage a dynamic range from a roar to a whisper.
They are fair trade and hand made in Ghana by professional African musicians. They have been made to be played, for beautiful sound. The skin is cow skin, so is much stronger than the normal goat skins, and is practically unbreakable. Rope is used so the drums can be tuned to accommodate our changeable weather.
You will see many cheaper drums made in factories in the Far East. The reasons for choosing a genuine African Fair Trade Drum;
- the drum body is made from African Cedar (called Tweneboa). This is a fast growing tree. All our wood is obtained under license from the forestry commission in Ghana. Using this wood is less damaging for the environment than hardwood drums,
- they are individually hand made by African drummers rather than mass produced in factories. We have been working in partnership with these musicians for 18 years and we aim to promote and strengthen ancient African musical traditions,
- the skins are made from strong tough African cow skin rather than weakened skins bleached for aesthetic reasons as is common with mass produced drums.
