Djembe Drum - 15cm

The Djembe drum from West Africa has achieved world status as a percussion instrument. The drum shell is carved or turned out of wood. Then the skin is stretched across the top and tied on using knotted nylon cord to provide tension, and a way to tune or alter the pitch.

To play the Djembe drum you use your open hand to "slap" the skin from the centre outwards. Different sounds can be made - the most distinctive are those in the middle and the outisde of the drum. You can either play holding the drum between your knees, or with the large sizes sitting on top of the drum laid horizontally on the floor. Our Djembes are made in Senegal and Bali.

Due to the nature of this product, colours and sizes may vary.

How this gift helps

The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise and when you buy anything from our shop, you're supporting our work and educational programmes.

As well as offering our visitors to Eden a memorable, educational day out, we also use our expertise to work with local organisations across the world.

In Thailand, we have been working with local organisation FORRU on reforestation projects to restore large areas of degraded tropical forest. Over 65,000 trees have been planted and community training and learning has been shared across the country building up a network of local knowledge on how to protect rainforests and conserve natural resources..
