Details

Vibrant colors dance to the beat of this handcrafted djembe drum. Daniel Asante recreates the colorful patterns of Ghana's kente cotton cloths to host the goat hide drum head. This is held taught with cotton threads and iron rods. Djembes are among the better-known drums from Africa. Its origin can be traced to the Great Mali Empire of 12th century. The drum is played during full moon celebrations, harvest time, weddings, baptisms, and for honoring mothers. Asante calls this drum "Firitete," meaning "From the Past" in Akan language.

For a smaller drum, this work of art has a deeper resonating sound. Dont be fooled by hits small stature! Tuned perfectly! :)

I like to sit in another chair across the room and stare at this one. It?s simply an amazing piece of art that is great to sit on, they have withstood the teenaged football players test. I plan to purchase a few more from this artist.
