    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.
