This drum will turn heads and leave 'em talking. Carved from a solid piece of #1 quality premium mahogany logwood. Drumheads on this Rama Sita djembe are also premium quality with goat hair around the rim that provides greater tonal range.

Weight: 19 lb
Rope: Low Stretch Alpine Nylon HTB 5 mm rope, 35 sets of rope runners with a 3 ring system at the head for more stable tuning and elimination of skin slippage.


The Story
Rama & Sita is a story about Prince Rama, the great warrior, who was married to the beautiful Sita.

One day, Sita was spotted by a demon king, named Ravana. When Ravana saw the beautiful Sita, he immediately came up with a plan to kidnap her and make her his wife by tempting her with a beautiful deer in the forest.

Rama seached the world for Sita following her trail of jewelry. She was discovered on a private island refusing to marry Ravana.

All the world rejoiced. The reign of the demons was over and Rama and Sita returned to their own country to rule. In every home, an oil lamp was put in the window to welcome back the Rama and Sita and their great army. The royal ruled happily for many years until it was time for them to leave their life on earth and return to heaven.
