The West African symbol carved into the djembe 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." 1

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.

Sizes: 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.

20" Tall x 10-11" Head, 25 sets of rope runners

Reviewer: K from Southold, NY United States  
Drum arrived promptly.  Websight was very useful and informative.  Buying for our college age son.  He wanted a smaller djembe.  Drum is beautiful.
Thank you.
