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 hand-crafted instruments and hands-on programs provide jobs for West African craftsmen, community members, performers, and teaching artists around the world.
