About the Ashiko Drum: An ashiko is a kind of drum shaped like a truncated cone and meant to be played with bare hands. The ashiko drum is played throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas. In eastern Cuba, it is known as boku and is played during carnivals and street parades called Comparsas. Some consider the ashiko to be male and the djembe female.

How to tune your Ashiko: This is a bolt tuned ashiko and the heads are tightened with a wrench, which is included with the drum.

A beautiful drum June 11, 2011
Reviewer: Melissa Nichols from Pell City, AL United States  
The rosewood Ashiko is a gorgeous item, however it did not have the hair around the rim as pictured in the photo, but if that isn't a big issue for you, I would highly recommend this product...the photos do the intricate hand carvings of this item no justice, it's a sight (and sound) to behold .
