I'm afraid my technique does not yet do it full justice:) There are a few phone-made videos on our group's facebook page https://www.facebook.com/afropulss/
, but I wish I could record with a better sound quality!

Yes, that seems to be their general style. In fact, because of the stem diameter, it did not fit in the standard Meinl djembe bag, I had to get a custom-made one.

Thanks, Michi! I'm proud of it:) It's interesting that I picked this particular one from the bunch because I liked the sound and it felt slightly lighter .. and then Jeremy explained that it was not a freshly carved shell, but had actually been his drum for a few years.
