The djembe is a popular form of drum, rivaled primarily by the conga and steel pan. The djembe has its origins in the Bamanakan phrase ‘Anke dje, anke be’, which translates to ‘everyone gather together’.

This largest djembe drum is perfect for adults and teens, both beginners and acomplished players. Each fair tradedjembe drum has an original style and is hand carved – no two are alike. The djembe is an easy instrument for developing percussion skills. A hand-held instrument usually played with your bare hands, the djembe is often found being played in groups along with other percussion instruments. The djembe has an incredible tonal range, from thunderclap to whisper soft, setting it apart from other drums.
