The djembe is one of West Africa's best known instruments. Some say the name of the djembe came from the Bamana in Mali, who said "Anke dje, anke be" to call their people together, as the saying translates as "everyone gather together." "Dje" means gather and "be" means everyone, which gave the drum used in these calls to order its name. The djembe drum is most likely about 400-800 years old, and was created during the Malian Empire by the Mandé people. The belief is that the djembe drum contains the spirit of the tree from which it was made, the spirit of the animal whose skin is played, and the spirit of the carver or the one who cut the tree and the people who assemble the drum. Congratulations and the product that you help re-create and what a wonderful introduction for young Australians to be exposed to a wide variety of musical instruments from all cultures. Love all your product!!!!
