    The djembe came in a timely manner and in great shape! I've not gotten a chance to play it proper yet, but I've noodled around on it and the tone sounds amazing. the fingerprint carve pattern is so beautiful, too! fantastic product all around!!

    Perfect size for a petite woman. Great sound. A few scratches that affect only appearance.

    I ordered this product last week and I sent an email and left a voice message asking the status. Today I received a request to review the product which still has not come and I have not received a reply from djembe direct to either of my inquires. the tracking package option is not telling me anything except it has been delayed.

    11” X 22” African Heartwood Project djembe

    Posted by Jennifer on Sep 7th 2020

    I wanted to support West African artisans When purchasing my first djembe, so I ordered this beautiful djembe from Djembe Direct in support of the African Heartwood Project. The slightly smaller size is perfect for my petite stature. It looks and sounds great and was delivered in a timely fashion. I highly encourage supporting this non-profit organization when choosing a Djembe.
