The sound of African drums is one of the most inspiring, heartfelt and thunderous noises in the world. African instruments and the music they generate play a huge part in African culture and our African drums section is one of the most popular on our online musical instrument shop. The djembe drum is by far the best known of the African drums and is usually played alongside dundun bass drums (also known as djuns and doum doums).
Our brands include Kambala, Bucara, Toca, LP, Afroton, Pearl, and Meinl, and we import drums direct from Mali and Ghana, including our fabulous Lenke djembes, making sure we are utilising Fair Trade methods to support local people and their economies. We also stock a wide range of bags, straps, hats and accessories for djembe drums and tuning rope, to support our djembe drums reskinning service.
Drums have always been fantastic musical instruments for kids, but they are easy to pick up and use for people of all ages and abilities. We offer tuition materials for various African instruments and along with the drums we offer from other areas of the world, you can combine African drums with percussion instruments, stringed instruments and wind instruments to create your own unique sound
