Description

The Djembe is a rope tuned, skin covered goblet drum which is played with the bare hands and dates back to 1200A.D.

According to the Bamana people of Mali, the name of the Djembe comes form the saying "Anke dje. anke be" which translates as "Everyone gather together in peace", and defines the drum's purpose.

This set, for 12 players, provides an excellent insight into the range of drums played along the West Coast of Africa.

The range of Djembe sizes create mulit-layered rhythms led by a drum leader on the larger sized Djembe.

The Dundun ( also known as Kenkeni) drum adds another dimension of deep bass sound and the Caxixis and Gourd Shekere provide the treble - completing the percussion section.

This beautifully hand crafted, high quality pack is an excellent way to start or add to your drum circle or class and provides a significant saving when compared to purchasing individual drums.

Drums range from 40 cm height to 60 cm height.

Pack includes:

  • 1 x Dundun (22 cm diameter)
  • 3 x Jammer Djembe (20 cm diameter)
  • 3 x Jammer Djembe (24 cm diameter)
  • 2 x Jammer Djembe (30 cm diameter)
  • 2 x Caxixi 1 x Gourd Shekere
