Senegalese djembe's have got a fairly bad wrap (somewhat deservedly) for being low quality tourist drums.

So came across these guys in Dakar and thought I would share their work.

Did you come across them while you were in Dakar, or you came across them in your virtual travels?

I don't know.. I have seen both versions of Total Recall now and have kinda blurred the lines of reality. Though the smell in conakry today is quite realistic :D I met the guy running it, but didnt actually hit a drum. I was looking quite ahile for a decent carver in Dakar nand hav found someone now.

I've read both the original by Philip K. Dick and the rewrite by... forgot his name but he's famous. The first movie is based on the rewrite, which is very good. The original is a bit...different. And a lot shorter.
