DJEMBE
Goblet shaped hand drum with goat skin (sometimes thin cow or antelope). Without a doubt the most popular of the African drums. The djembe (Jembe, jimbe) originates with the West African Malinke people who are spread across Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Gambia and Senegal. Played well it has a wide range of sounds and is a powerful instrument. It is traditionally supported by the dunun bass drums and provides both rhythmic accompaniment and the melodic solo for the dancers.
