Elephant Mahogany Djembe drum

$ 320.00

The Mahogany Djembe Drum is a Nigerian hand drum. Akeem carves unique Nigerian designs into the mahogany wood completing the design with a carved elephant, a strong symbol in Nigerian culture. Then he stretched the goat skin over the end and ties with rope to achieve the necessary tension for the desired sound. He also adds rope along the base as a decorative accent and as the method to carry the drum. Finally, the drum is fine-tuned to achieve the required tone.  

This drum is great for an expert drummer or as a decorative accessory in your home.

The drum is 16 inches high and has a diameter of 10 inches.

"Drums speak a universal language."

    - Akeem Ayanniyi, of Agalu African Music, Nigeria
