Details

By Ghanaian artisan Ernestina Oppong Asante, this djembe drum is sure to make a charming and enjoyable addition to your home decor. Originating in West Africa, djembe drums are traditionally used for voodoo rituals, but over time have been incorporated into the musical traditions of surrounding areas. The drum is handcrafted of tweneboa wood, etched with dondo motifs, characteristic of a style of "talking" drum from North Ghana. A goat leather head and polyester cord completes the drum.
