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.
There are commercial head conditioners on the market. However 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.
Never use harsh chemicals to clean you drum or the head. When not playing your drum do not leave it in a car or vehicle. Keep your drum, like all instruments, away from sources of cold or hot air.
Smaller head than ideal, but works and sounds great. For me, it is a budget drum with a soft, base padded carrying bag. The drum allows me to practice, play, and enjoy rhythms simply and with mobility. Came with a DvD demonstrating how to easily tune the Djembe, and how to play the Djembe. Good stuff, and friendly customer service over the phone, called me day after placing order to inform me that the celtic design I had ordered was out of stock, and gave me a few options. Decided to go with same drum different design. Hand carved, rich dark stain.
