This Mali Djembe was hand carved from a solid piece of Iroko African hardwood. This wood showcases vivid grain swooping patterns all over the shell. The carved design at the bottom of the shell compliments the wood grain. The goatskin drum head has been applied using the overlapping technique that shows the beautiful color variations of the goatskin.
Note that the logwood used to make this hearty drum had two natural knots in the wood. These knots have been professionally repaired and will have no impact on the sound or longevity of this drum.
Each of our drums from West Africa are one-of-a-kind so the drum pictured is the exact drum you will receive. It has been inspected for any flaws, cracks and for exceptional playability.
