This beautiful Ghanaian djembe drum is hand carved from solid, chunky African cedar wood for booming, loud bass tones and whip-crack highs. This impressive 13" head version features a thick, unbleached goatskin head and tough stringing. Our Ghanaian djembes also feature fascinating and authentic hand carved decorative patterns, that add a real authentic look.
These authentically African instruments are played with the bare hands and are capable of creating a large palette of percussive sounds, making it a very versatile instrument. Djembes are great for expanding conga setups or for adding interesting textures to percussion sections.
The drum body of these drums is made from the fast-growing wood of the Tweneboa tree, an African cedar and the wood is purchased from the forestry commission of Ghana. The drum skins are made from strong goatskin and have not been bleached or weakened by any other aesthetic process as it is eco-friendly. Each drum has been individually handmade by African drummers who can create these beautiful instruments with the passion and specialist knowledge they have gained from years of experience, No two are the same that's what makes them so so special.
