These special djembes were made in Mali where the djembe tradition started and is still going strong.  They made of tweneboa: Cordia millenii wood which djembe masters consider an excellent dense hardwood that produces nice tonal qualities.

The djembe making process is basically three-fold:  First, the perfect trees are selected from the countryside.  Next, the logs are delivered to the shell carvers who sculpt them into the djembe shape, which is traditional to Mali.  Then, they are transported to a workshop where they are sanded, oiled, the designs carved by hand with chisels and gouges, and the drums assembled. 

Goatskin drum heads. Rope colors may vary.
