Djembe Kente Drum

Description

Professional Sound! – This drum was expertly crafted from one solid piece of Tweneboa wood by professional drummers who also make and tune their own drums. Tweneboa wood is a kind of Cedar wood and a favorite wood of drum makers because of its durability and attractive finish. The wood is named after a skilled master drummer, Tweneboa Kodua, who during his lifetime was the chosen drum maker of many local chiefs.

 

The drum face is made of hand-shaved dried goat hide. It has a rich tone and features double iron ring head construction. Our drums are strung tightly with very durable rope and a double weave around the rim. This ensures that the drum stays well-tuned with long lasting superior sound quality. Excellent sound!

 

Due to the hand-crafted nature of the drum, you can expect some nuances in measurements and color, especially the goat skin. This is the unique characteristic of hand-carving; no two pieces are exactly alike. For the most part, the skin from the back of the goat is used in stringing the drum. Handmade in Ghana. 13" Face x 24"H.
