How to Play Djembe and Care of Djembe
To play the Djembe sit on the edge of a chair. Cross your ankles and tuck them slightly under you. Hold the Djembe between your knees or thighs so that the bottom of the drum rests behind your heels. Djembe players will find a wide range of sounds can be produced from this instrument.
The best treatment for a skin head is use. The more a drum is played the better for the head. The natural oils from your skin will help to keep the head in condition. If you find the sound going a little dull you can re-tune the head using the cords.
We were very surprised with the very nicely tuned, very full, round and deep sound of this djembe! Shipping was fast and secure, the drum arrived in perfect condition and good time and we enjoy playing it every day since. The drum is beautifully crafted and sounds just great, nothing more to ask for.
My drum came Christmas Eve. It is beautiful, sounds great, and just the right size. I love it!
I have been playing the heck out of this drum ever since it arrived! It's an amazing instrument. It is gorgeous in carved mahogany and the sound is wonderful. I am very happy with this djembe!
