Details

Waves flow and ebb, their gentle shapes lapping at the base of an extraordinary drum. Samuel Coleman creates a beautiful field of texture in warm tweneboa wood. Sculpted by hand, it adorns this remarkable djembe. The djembe drum originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites, and has been introduced into neighboring countries; it has become indispensable in reggae. Coleman names this drum Mpitim, which means "Musical Organ" in the Akan language. The goatskin head is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macramé cord can be slung over the shoulder.
