ITEM#: 1006998

Handcrafted by artisans in Ghana, this African djembe drum is carved from a single piece of sese wood with a goatskin head and lacings. Today, this drum is gaining popularity throughout the world as a great addition to drumming circles, rituals, gatherings, or to play alone.

Product Features:
  • West Africa's most popular drum
  • Remarkably flexible range of tones, produced by its thin skin, shape, and tight tuning
  • Mounted on a mask as a symbol of pride
  • Crafted of wood and goat skin
  • Measures 17 inches high x 10 inches in diameter

Story Behind the Art:
Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

  • Sese Wood Djembe Mask Drum - Art Object

    Went through two of these, both arrived withOUT the mount plate mask shown in the photo. No one in customer service knew why... First had body cracked and chipped paint someone had filled in with magic marker. Both showed time and/or temperature issues as the ropes had moved up the drum about a 1/2 inch, way out of tune. Drum center moved a good 1/8 inch to pressure. Felt that retailer should be shipping instruments that were quality checked. Awaiting refund.
