We had just finished playing a phrase all together, about 30 people, and when we stopped at the break my Remo drum was still resonating like a gong. Everyone was looking around to see where the Tibetan monk with gong was sitting. Realizing what everyone was looking at, I quickly placed my finger in the center of the head and the ringing stopped. Mamady and everyone in attendance broke out in laughter, much to my chagrin. That is self conscious! I immediately went out and purchased an authentic african djembe and haven't looked back since.


Almost the same thing happened to me with an "Arfrican style" djembe from Indonesia! :rofl:

Hi everyone,
I thought I would post an image of my Berkina Faso Djembe as I haven't seen too many on here. It is a 12" djalla shell, skinned with goat, and very heavy. This is my first and only djembe. I thought I would post an image also of the inside, not as grooved as a Guinea shell, but the swirl pattern is still there.

Djalla, Berkina Faso

Nice djembes bob682 and Skijah.

I have really enjoyed looking at all the different drums on here, cheers Kim.

Hi,

I'm new here so I thought I should show you guys my drums.
My main drum is the big one in the first three pictures, the last picture is a smaller cheaper drum I bought just to be able to jam with friends without djembes (yes there are such people! :o )

Hi malkuthianritual,

Lovely grain in the wood on your main djembe, is it khadi?,

regards, Kim.

Hi!

I actually don't know.
The djembe is imported from Mali.

After some googling your suggestion seems possible.
Or maybe Haré (Guéni)?

I love that blue rope. Now I know what I'd like my drum to look like when it's time for a new goat.
