Product Overview

The Drum Circle Djembe by Africa Heartwood Project is designed to offer a budget drum for the beginner drummer whose priority is to get a playable djembe for the lowest possible price. These are real djembes, handcarved in Ghana, and are suitable for a drummer who is interested in recreational rhythm making. These drums are typical of what you would find at an open-air market in Ghana, are likely the type of drum-souvenir most tourists take home with them after a holiday in Africa, and is an improvement on most drums exported from Indonesia. They tend to look exotic but lack some of the quality details that finer djembes built for technical drumming have. The 11"x22" size is slightly smaller than full-size, and is suitable for more petite adult drummers, most women, and upper-elementary to middle school age students. This drum features a deep red/brown stain, deep or line carved elephant/giraffe/boar in contrast light/dark, with hair shaved, and black rope. This djembe may come with tasteful Africa Heartwood Project branding stamps on the skin and/or side of the drum.  Exact size and style will vary from photos above, but will be similar.

* Hand-carved from a solid Mansonia wood using traditional methods in Ghana, West Africa, sealed to prevent cracking
* Strong natural African goat skin, never bleached, with custom fitted rings (2 top, 1 bottom), with ledge for bottom ring
* Durable black rope for loops and verticals with extra tuning rope wrapped, and well-shaped bearing edge for playing comfort
* Each drum is hand tuned before packing, with tuning knots started - Ready to play right out of the box!
* Built in Africa by African cultural artisans supported by non-profit Africa Heartwood Project

    The drum received was different than the one pictured, which is to be expected with individually hand-crafted instruments. Mine looks amazing, sounds amazing, and serves as functional art in my music room between drumming sessions. Thoroughly impressed with the craftsmanship and sound! (And confused why this form capitalizes every word even though my keyboard is not set to do that!)
