Carl has hit the nail on the head and has answered my questions and put me straight on many points.
To begin with I'll use a smaller instrument so that I am free to move around and aid the people that need it. I will also put the people with a better sense of rhythm next to the lesser rhythmic ones.
The mounting of an amp etc on a djembe I will put on a back burner but I'm meeting with a couple of practical sound engineers the coming week as I still believe it can be done.
So thanks a lot folks.
By the way, in one of my other lives I spent a lot of time living in the jungle in South east Asia and they have a drum, the gedombak, that resembles the djembe. It is thought that the trading arabs brought them with them in the 9th century.
