About the Djembe Drum

Djembe

THE ORIGIN OF THE DJEMBE IS GENERALLY ATTRIBUTED TO MALI, WEST AFRICA.  IT IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1700s OR EARLIER.  THE DJEMBE IS A BEAUTIFUL & SPECIAL DRUM WITH POWERS TO EMPOWER ANY DRUMMER, DANCER & LISTENER.  IT OFFERS A GREAT COMBINATION OF BASS & TREBLE TONES.  ITS EFFECTS CAN BE BOTH EARTHY & COSMIC.  

TODAY, IT IS PLAYED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.  IT IS STILL ABUNDANTLY POPULAR IN WEST AFRICA, IN COUNTRIES SUCH AS GUINEA, MALI, IVORY COAST AND SENEGAL.  IT HAS ALSO TRAVELED ACROSS THE OCEAN TO EUROPE, SOUTH AND NORTH AMERICA.  IT IS TRULY A GLOBAL INSTRUMENT.  

THE DJEMBE IS ALSO REFERRED TO AS A "HEALING DRUM".  MANY SOCIETIES ATTRIBUTE HEALING POWERS TO IT BECAUSE ITS TONES & THE AFRICAN & AFRO-CUBAN RHYTHMS PLAYED ON IT ARE RENEWING, EXCITING & HEALING.
