Beautiful and sonorous, this djembe drum exalts the beauty of Africa's renowned kente cloth. It comes from Daniel Asante's skill and imagination. The goatskin head is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macramé cord can be slung over the shoulder. The djembe originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites, and has been introduced into neighboring countries. It is indispensable in contemporary reggae.
