In West Africa, the Djembe drum is used to bring people together for many purposes: to communicate, celebrate and motivate.
The Djembe, a cultural lineage that goes back hundreds of years, is for all humanity to experience. The Djembe cultivates self-expression, mindfulness, and joy.
Our instrument workshop and program offerings provide jobs for West African craftsmen, community members, performers, and teaching artists around the world.

The balafon is one of the oldest instruments in the world. Anybody can play a note on the balafon, just strike the note and listen to your beautiful sound! Griot and Wula Drum artist Famoro Dioubate's demonstration shows that there is much more to this instrument with endless variations on the three octaves tuned to a major scale.
