Africa Heartwood Project djembes are hand-carved expreienced drum makers in West Africa. The Classical djembes are specially crafted with sound quality and playability in mind, with additional attention give to aesthetics. The 7-8in X14-16in is a miniature size version of the real thing; this is not a toy or merely a sourvenier that you would expect to fall apart after a few months. Size is suitable for most 2-5 year old children, but is also great for backpacking and as a substitute for a bongo, or when tuned high, a dumbek. All Classical Heartwood djembes are backed up by our satisfaction guarantee. Purchase with confidence, knowing each djembe is always individually inspected and tested before shipping.
Decorative carvings in the base typically consist of tasteful geometric patterns, similar to those shown in the photos above.
