In the right hands, these traditionally African hand percussion instruments can give new life to nearly any performance. They can boom, shout and sing with just a few different, strategically placed slaps. Djembes are relatively large instruments that are characteristically made of high quality wood and held between the knees for the greatest resonant tone. With drums from 8" to 16" tall, Percussion Source carries Latin Percussion, Meinl, Pearl and Remo djembes to diversify your drum collection today.
