Building djembes and playing professional djembes, learning traditional drum rhythms has been a love of mine for 25 years. I started making clay drums as a craftsman in the 80's. Drums of all kinds: Djembes, Doumbeks, Hoop and Bottle drums. Seeking a source of reliable goatskins, I began importing goat skin from Pakistan, and later from Africa. I first imported Ivory Coast and then Guinea djembes. After years of searching I found a reliable source for the best Professional djembe drums and percussion from Mali. Please take a look.
