Whether you use it as a musical instrument or as an elegant accent to your home decor, this African Jembe Drum is sure to impress.

Handcrafted in Ghana using traditional techniques, this exotic piece features goat skin stretched over a hand carved wooden frame. Jembe drums are used in ceremonial tribal festivals, and as a form of simple entertainment.

The Story Behind the Product

Nana was born to a family of 9 children in the town of Kumasi in Ghana, West Africa. His parents divorced when he was only 8 years old and Nana became so rebellious that his mother sent him to live with his father in Tamale (in the Northern region of Ghana) when Nana was 12 years old. It was there that he developed an interest in art. He dropped out of school when he was 14 and started training with a master carver in Tamale. In 2000 Nana began selling his products through Worldstock. Nana is now married with 3 children and lives in Accra, Ghana. He is now a master carver with his own shop and 10 employees. Nana?s life has been so improved since he began working with Worldstock that he named his son after his contact at Overtsock.com.

  • My Djembe drum features a wonderful hand carved illustration of an elephant picking leaves off of a tree. This particular drum doesn't have painted wood, which I like because the texture of the carving shows up better. Although I do not belong to a drumming circle, I would imagine that this bargain priced drum would be great for anybody who has wanted their own Djembe to play. It is the lowest priced African created Djembe I have been able to find. You will be fortunate if you happen to get a drum with the spine centered. If you don't expect a percussionist's professional grade instrument, you will be very pleased. This Djembe made an exotic addition to my living room decor.

    I bought this for my 67 yr. old mom (who recently starting playing my Djembe) for a Christmas Gift and she loves it. It sounds wonderful and the carving is beautiful. Now I'll be able to reclaim mine! Thank you for the quick delivery and quality product.

  • the drum
    Verified Purchase

    I just got my drum last night and was quit surprised in a good way, because it's a good size drum but i like the weight of it. It's pretty heavy maybe 20lbs. It does not look like anything cheap. It's actually a gift for my brother for christmas, and since he is into music and art i figured it would be a great combination to get him something unique and musical. Would recommended it and the price wasn't bad at all compared to what the drum actually looked like.

    Awesome drum. Very good sound, from warm bass to pizzicato rim. Fun to play. Exhausting and satisfying. Can't beat the price.

  • disappointing
    Verified Purchase

    I have purchased a number of djembes from Overstock for our school's drum circle. This is the first disappointment we've had. Upon arriving, the first thing we noticed was a piece of metal nailed up the side of the djembe to cover a piece of rotting wood. The first time a student used the drum, the head tore in half. I am thoroughly disappointed in the quality of this drum.

    Really a nice piece of art. I purchased 2 for my twin 3 year olds and they were simply gorgeous! One was more red and the other more brown.. It seems they are all different. I saw the same drums in a "hippie" shop in town selling for 5X the price! They are well worth it.
