A product of African craftsmen (Mali)
Top Guinea djembe - Large professional djembe drum
The legacy of unique expertise, this Top Guinea djembe was created by Guinean craftsmen unequalled in all of West Africa.
Its original aesthetic and exceptional sonority create an incomparable instrument.
Dried in a vacuum for at least 4 years, the shell of this djembe drum hollowed out, re-balanced and precisely sanded on a wood lathe. It is finally coated with a blend of beeswax and terpin, protecting it from wood-eating insects
Rosewood (gueni) is the densest wood used in the fabrication of Malian djembes.
Widely appreciated in Burkina Faso for its acoustic qualities, it is also used in the fabrication of the keys for balafons (African xylophones).
