Djembe is West Africas most popular drum, because of its contrasting notes, a high crisp tone and deep bass. Covered in goat/calf or antelope skin, made from Twebo (Cedar) in Ghana and lthe hard wood Lenge or Irokoco in the Ivory Coast. Its shape, the hardness of wood and the tightness of skin, produces a wide range of tones, from a deep bass in the centre of the drum to a high crack on the rim.
