This drum is named Matahari (or Sun) to represent the warmth of a parent's love. The West African symbol carved into the drum is called The Leg of a Hen. It is a symbol of the ideal nature of parents, being both protective and corrective. A close translation is "The hen treads on her chicks, but she does not injure them."
The Matahari Pro African djembe drum is a professional level djembe that sounds absolutely fantastic and is built to perfection. Made with the utmost care and attention to detail this Pro African djembe drum is a hand-carved beauty that is not only stunning but a true work of art. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
We take great pride that our djembe drums are environmentally friendly. Each drum is made from legally harvested/Government inspected and certified Mahogany.
Please note that each drum is hand-carved, by master carvers, and sizes will tend to slightly fluctuate. No two drums are exactly alike which makes each one a unique work of art.
