Each year we travel to West Africa in search of amazing djembes. Over the past decade, we’ve been fostering relationships with the master carvers of Ghana, Mali, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, and Guinea. We’re also established in Bali, where we develop affordable, quality djembes for our Indo Range. All of our drums are covered by warranty, and we stand by our reputation of producing world class djembe drums. Watch a Video of our Collection here
