On its own, the djembe is a warm, relaxing, and energetic instrument that’s ideal for celebrations, dancing, or simply gathering with friends. But when a djembe meets a guitar, the result is pretty magical. You still get that warm, relaxing sound and even the energy that makes you want to get up and dance. But there’s also an intimacy to a sultry guitar backed by a simple yet exotic world drum rhythm.
The combination can create a variety of sounds and moods that can be both romantic and relaxing. Sometimes you’ll hear a hint of folk that’s perfect for drowning out the sounds of a busy coffee shop when you want to focus on your work while at other times, you’ll feel as if you’re roaming the adventurous and mysterious streets of a Latin city. No matter which mood the combination creates, djembe and guitar music will bring you to a calm, relaxing state.
