6" Traditional African Djembe | Rope-Tuned

The djembe is one of West Africa's best known instruments. Traditionally, the various rhythms played on a djembe are only played at a certain time for a specific reason. For instance, djembe drumming could accompany the passage into adulthood or marriage. It was also played to honor specific groups of people or professions. The djembe has definitely settled into Western culture in the last century, and it holds a prominent place in much of modern pop music.
