Medium/Large-sized djembe drum. Djembe Drums are a traditional African musical instrument, and this entire instrument is handmade. The drum surface is goat skin, and the base is made of sturdy carved wood encircled with plain or braided rope. Some have designs etched into the base as well as fabric trim along the top. These drums are popular in reggae and other cultural musical productions. In West Africa, nearly all ceremonies are accompanied by the timeless and distinctive melody of drums. 2 or more (or a combination of 1 of these and either a full size or medium drum ) can incur oversized shipping.
