Djembé

The djembé is a drum originating from West Africa, it is carved from wood, skinned with goat or calf skin and tensioned / tuned using an intricate series of knots called the Mali weave.  It is played with the hands. 

In recent times the djembe has become arguably one of the most popular and commonly seen drums anywhere around the world.  There is a huge growth in the interest in this form of drumming  through drum circles and other gatherings.  There is a lot of information available regarding the instrument and this menu on Drumdojo gives links to further reading on the site and elsewhere. If you really want the detail, check out http://www.drums.org/djembefaq the website of the Djembe-l list.
