There are so many Wula Drums to choose from, it can be hard to pick. Michael Markus, the president of Wula Drum, explains how to choose a djembe.
Djembes have gained worldwide popularity and are made in many different locations around the world. All Wula Drums are made by hand in Guinea, West Africa – where the djembe is originally from – using the same hardwoods that have been used for generations.

The music for this album is traditional, "old school" Bambara-based djembe music. These arrangements were put together by master drummer Aruna Sidibe. He plays and is joined by his students and other musicians. The style is noticeably different than the one played by younger drummers or the "young gun" arrangements, the style currently favored in Bamako, for example.
