Details

The Bambara people of Mali suggest the djembe drum gets its name from the saying, Anke djé, anke bé which translates as "everyone gather together in peace" - thus defining the djembe's purpose. Christopher Nyasafo celebrates this legendary style of African drum with this decorative mini-djembe, in blue, black and white. He hand-carves the goblet-like shape of the drum from tweneboah wood, and gives a weathered appearance to the leather drumhead, which is affixed with iron rings wrapped in cotton.

"Not the best"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When I opened this package, the mask looked like it had been dropped in the mud right before being dropped in the mail. It took me about 2 hrs with a toothbrush to get the mask clean enough to hang. Also, the painting on the mask was very much not up to the standard I was expecting.

First, ordering to delivery was very good from Ghana to Florida. Kwele masks are so beautiful, no flaws, perfect. This Artisan is amazing. The packaging was so well protected and looked like a gift with ribbon. Thank You Christopher Nyasafo. I am very, very impressed.
