DESCRIPTION

Take a glimpse deep into the bush of Burkina Faso where the djembe drum is a sacred instrument. Learn about the socio-cutural hsitory of the djembe and other traditional drums, and how their use and place in society and the economy has evolved. Every person interested in playing or teaching the djembe should build their foundation of knowledge and experience upon the information contained herein, if they are not able to travel in person to Africa to experience for themselves.
