Djembe

  1. 1. Djembe By Mrs Schneider
  2. 2. Djembe is a skin covered drum.
  3. 3. It is believed that the djembe drum was invented in the twelfth century by the Mandinke tribe, in Mali, West Africa
  4. 4. According to the Bamana people in Mali, the name of the djembe comes directly from the saying "Anke djé, anke bé" which translates to "everyone gather together in peace" and defines the drum's purpose.
  5. 5. Traditionally crafted djembe drums were carved from a single section of a Lenge tree
  6. 6. Drum heads are made from goats skin Goats raised in West Africa are thought to have tougher and harder hides which give the drum a special quality.
  7. 7. Tuning Djembe drums are tuned by evenly pulling the vertical ropes very tightly so that a system of metal rings brings the skin down over the drum shell.
  8. 8. As a result of the goblet shape, the density of the wood, the internal carvings, and the skin, there is a wide range of  tones that can be produced by the djembe. 
  9. 9. Tones •The Bass •The Tone •The Slap
